BRA M: Both foreigners leave Cruzeiro – Sander goes to Russia, Le Roux’s destination unknown

Uriarte is coming to Sada and Otavio too, so they will need probably a new libero and a very good player to replace Sander, Sergio is 40 years old and Sada tried Thiago Brendle but he will be on Sesc next year, so theres a one place for a foreigner player Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply
