The first classic of the German men’s club volleyball this season went in favor of VfB Friedrichshafen.


With a 3-0 (26-24, 25-20, 25-22) win against Berlin Recycling Volleys, VfB Friedrichshafen ensured a flawless premiere at their new home - the Zeppelin CAT Hall A1 - to which they moved after the shutdown of their old arena.

With the victory in the first ‘der Klassiker’ of the season, valid for Round 5 of the 2020/21 1. Bundesliga regular season for men, the ‘Häfler’ tied with the Berlin in the standings (12 points apiece). Friedrichshafen are third, while the team from the county’s capital occupies the second position. Volleyball Bisons Bühl are at the top with 12 points as well but with one less match played.

As for the ‘classic’ itself, Berlin couldn’t count on two starters – the Russian Sergey Grankin and French outside hitter Timothée Carle. Linus Weber top-scored the winning side with 16 points, including 4 blocks, while Markus Steuerwald had 73 % reception (18 % perfect). The Frenchman Samuele Tuia scored 13 points for Berlin.

Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
