Proton caused an upset in Round 4 of the 2019/20 Russian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season by beating Uralochka-NTMK.

 

Uralochka-NTMK were undefeated in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch in the first three rounds, which was a surprising result by itself. Thus, they imposed themselves as favorites on paper against the visiting side od Proton. However, the Saratov team showed that the Russian Championship will definitely be highly competitive this season - they beat Uralochka-NTMK by a 3-2 (16-25, 27-25, 25-16, 22-25, 15-13) and leveled with them at 3-1 but remained three points behind them in the charts (10-7). On the other hand, Uralochka failed to take over the lead in the standings that remained in the hands of Lokomotiv. Kseniya Parubets made an outstanding display against Proton with 37 points! Moldovian Aliona Martiniuc scored 24 points for the winning side, while Yuliya Grigoryeva set up 6 kill blocks.

Whilst the defeat of Uralochka can be considered as a surprise, the defeat of Dinamo Moscow can’t, even though they carry a Superliga crown. Zarechie-Odintsovo inflicted the third defeat of the season for the team from the Russian capital. Dinamo Moscow squandered two-set advantage and succumbed in the tie-break. Their opposite hitter Nataliya Goncharova was the top scorer of the match with 32 points, while the prospect outside hitter Viktoriya Russu tallied 28 points for Zarechie-Odintsovo.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
