PGE Skra Bełchatów prevailed in the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship classic against titleholders Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, valid for Round 19 of the 2019/20 regular season.

 

The PlusLiga classic in Bełchatów attracted nearly 3,000 spectators at the Hala Energia with tickets being sold out two weeks ago! The match had everything the fans expected - spectacular actions, twists and turns, and ultimately five sets that came after Skra’s lead of 2-0. These two sides met 52 times in PlusLiga prior to today’s encounter.

The Bełchatów team won 29 times and ZAKSA 23 times. Skra couldn’t count on a starting outside hitter Artur Szalpuk. On the other hand, ZAKSA finally had Piotr Łukasik and Łukasz Kaczmarek at the disposal. With 19 points (88.2% attack, 15/17), Jakub Kochanowski led six players of Skra with double digits in scoring. Karol Kłos made 5 kill blocks. Aleksander Śliwka put down 24 points for the losing side.

The result of the classic didn’t cause a reshuffle in the standings. Because of a surprising defeat yesterday, VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa didn’t manage to further isolate at the top, ZAKSA are second, Skra are third. However, due to a shocking loss of the fourth-placed Jastrzębski Węgiel against Aluron Virtu CMC Zawiercie (3-2), the gap between the top three teams and the rest of the league has increased.

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.
