The upset was seen on the start of the second playoff semifinal of the 2019/20 Greek men’s volleyball Championship (the first national league in Europe that resumed after the break caused by the coronavirus), as well.


No.2 seed PAOK overturned the Game 1 of the 2019/20 Volley League Pame Stoixima playoff semifinals against No.3 seed Panathinaikos A.O and caused an upset (just like Foinikas against Olympiacos, yesterday).

Even 21 kill blocks and 2-0 weren’t enough for Panathinaikos, who entered the match as favorites given that PAOK couldn’t count on any of the foreigners who played for them prior to the season break due to coronavirus: Steven Marshall, Kay van Dijk, Bries van den Dries, Dmitriy Ilinykh… Panathinaikos were only deprived of the help of Serbian Saša Starović.

The Thessaloniki side was led by Alexandros Boutos (21 points), while Alexandros Raptis top-scored for Panathinaikos (30 points).

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
