Itambé/Minas win the classic of the Minas Gerias state against Dentil/Praia Clube, valid for the last round of the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Club Championship in Uberlândia (Brazil), and maintained hegemony in the continent with three consecutive titles.

 

Minas dominated hosts Praia in the all-Brazilian duel of the 2020 Sudamericano de Clubes femenino to win the event for the fifth time, the third in a row (1999, 2000, 2018, 2019 and 2020).

In what turned out to be a decisive match of the last round between the two undefeated sides, the Belo Horizonte beat prevailed in the “clássico mineiro” by a 3-0 (25-22, 27-25, 25-16) at the Arena Sabiazinho, in Uberlândia. In addition, the victory of Minas guarantees them a direct ticket in the next edition of the FIVB Club World Championship that will be held at the end of the year. The squad coached by Italian Nicola Negro won the competition without losing a single set in all four games.

Argentinean side San Lorenzo secured a bronze medal yesterday.

This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
