Daejeon Samsung Fire & Marine Bluefangs lost the battle for the top-seed in the regular season of the Korean men’s volleyball championship – the 2017-2018 Dodram Variety League (V-League).


Although Daejeon Samsung Fire & Marine Bluefangs’ chances of claiming No.1 for the playoffs were already slim due to the fact their biggest rivals for this, the defending champs Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers, made a significant gap in the standings compared to them, these chances are now completely ruined.

The Bluefangs lost at home to Incheon Korean Air Jumbos by a 3-0 (25-20, 26-24, 25-15), three rounds before the end of the regular stage. And since the defending champions Skywalkers have one game less and 10 points more on their account (Skywalkers 22-10 record; 69 points vs. Bluefangs 21-12; 58 pts.), the battle for the top-seed and automatic berth for the playoff finals is over in favor of the titleholders.

The Slovenian opposite Mitja Gasparini topped Jumbos with 22 points. The Dutchman Thijs ter Horst scored 12 points for the Bluefangs.

At the same time, the Jumbos isolated themselves even more at No.3 (the ultimate playoff spot) with a 21-12 and 57 points. Their nearest followers, Uijeongbu KB Insurance Stars, have a 16-16 and 46 points, with one game less.

Berlin to host CEV Champions League finals

Why Berlin? Makes so sense. Germany clubs are bad. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Perugia retain the trophy after being down 2-0, Lube’s another fail in the final…

Leon is currently the best outside hitter in the world.
Modena is in trouble with Christenson's injury, they desperately need 1st class outside hitter, that is their weakest spot.
Lube has 'too many stars' syndrome coupled with the psychological issue of losing 7 finals in the row.
Trentino and Perugia are the best and their games are decided by what kind of day they have on the court but either team can win. Reply
