Sporting CP won the 2021 Portuguese Men’s Volleyball Cup, a trophy that has fled them since the 1994/95 season.


Sporting CP beat SL Benfica by a 3-1 (29-27, 25-22, 16-25, 28-26) in the final of the 2021 Portugese Men’s Taça de Portugal. Thus, ‘The Lions’ lifted the trophy which they last time won 26 years ago. Prevailing over the biggest sporting rivals in the country in the final held in Santo Tirso, Sporting won the national cup for the 4th time in the club history.

Brazilian Paulo Victor Silva top-scored the winning side with 18 points. Two of his compatriots also stood out in Sporting: Éder Levi set up 4 blocks, while Renan Purificação had 71 % reception (21 digs, 1 error, 19 % excellent). Another Brazilian stood out in the match. Théo Lopes scored 21 points for Benfica. Ivo Casas made 82 % reception (22 digs, 2 errors, 45 % excellent).

These two teams will face each other again in less than a week at the start of the playoff semifinals.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
