An amazing unbeaten run of River Plate in the 2019/20 Argentine Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season came to an end.


River Plate’s last match on Weekend 3 of the 2019/20 Liga Argentina de Voleibol regular season brought them their first failure. The team from Buenos Aires is a real hit of the season in Argentina so far, winning all five games since the beginning of the season. But, the reigning champions Bolívar Voley have ended their unbeaten run and, at the same time, extend their own by prevailing in the big match in straight-sets, partially 25-20, 25-23 and 25-14. Cuban opposite hitter Jesús Herrera top-scored for Bolívar with 20 points, including 5 aces. However, River remained at the top of the charts with 5-1 and 15 points.

The second most-titled side in Liga Argentina, UPCN San Juan Voley Club, needed four games to record their premier victory. They did it in the city derby against the vice-champions Obras de San Juan.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
