France made the race for the Final Six of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball more exciting by beating Pool 15 hosts Iran on Week 4 closing.

 

France gave Iran the real chance only in the first set, prevailing in the next two relatively easy to end rival’s seven-game winning streak (team record): 3-0 (25-18, 26-24, 25-21). Thus, France prevented Iran to have a perfect record after two successive weeks in which they were hosts – Week 3 in Urmia and this week in Ardabil.

Both teams are among the top six teams in the charts that will take part in the Finals in Chicago, the USA.

Trévor Clévenot highlighted for France (9-3; 28 points) with 15 points, while Mohammadjavad Manavinezhad notched 10 for Iran (10-2; 30 points).

 

The clash between the two teams fighting to avoid relegation Portugal and Australia, knowing that they are the lowest ranked challenger teams in the 2019 VNL standings at the moment, went into the favor of the players from the “Down Under” country 3-0.

Portugal (2-10; 7 points) had an advantage in the block (12-2) but Australia out-served rivals (11-2).

Lincoln Williams top-scored for the “Volleyroos” (2-10; 10 points) with 21 points. Marco Ferreira made 15 for Portugal, while Phelipe Martins set up 5 kill blocks.

Some of the players from the Portuguese national team during the match would get a hard blow from me. When he served Alex Ferreira and the ball was passing to Portugal, they did terrible things.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
