The eight-time Portuguese men’s volleyball Championship winners Sport Lisboa e Benfica renewed the contract with one of their key players.


Brazilian veteran Raphael Oliveira “Rapha” reached an agreement to renew the contract with Benfica. Thus, the 36-year-old outside hitter will play his fourth season with the eight-time Portuguese champions, the third in a row.

The ex-Brazil National Team member (won the 2011 Pan American Cup) was the best attacker of the Portuguese league last season (55.9 %).

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
