Cucine Lube Civitanova trampled over Leo Shoes Modena in a derby of Round 6 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


In the big match of Round of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season, Lube beat Modena and recorded their seventh success in as many games: 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-20). Even though they were deprived of the help from Osmany Juantorena due to the adductor muscle strain and facing the team that didn’t concede a single set from the start of the league, Lube redeemed to their fans for losing the recent Super Cup semifinals to the same rivals and isolated themselves in the charts with 7-0 and 21 points. The naturalized Brazilian Yoandy Leal top-scored for the winning side with 15 points, which was as much as Ivan Zaytsev tallied on the other sied id the net.

Sir Safety Conad Perugia outplayed Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia without difficulties, leaving rivals in the last place in the standings: 3-0 (25-17, 25-17, 25-17). Perugia head coach Vital Heynen has chosen to give a rest to the starting opposite hitter, Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević, while he won’t be able to count on the middle blocker Fabio Ricci for a long time due to injury. Poland National Team member Wilfredo León chipped in with 19 points, including 6 aces, for the winning side. American Torey DeFalco scored 11 points for Vibo.

The match between the home side of Gas Sales Piacenza and Vero Volley Monza was marked by the new record of SuperLega. Piacenza’s veteran Alessandro Fei became the best-ever scorer of the competition! At one moment in the fourth set, the opposite hitter put down point No. 9,689 of his career and overtook the overall SuperLega top-scorer crown from Hristo Zlatanov. Piacenza beat Monza by a 3-2 with Dick Kooy pouring in 20 points. The Czech Donovan Džavoronok scored 21 for the losing side.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
