Halkbank made quite a surprise in Round 16 of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


The most-titled “living” male club in Turkey, Halkbank, made a surprise by defeating Spor Toto in Round 16 of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. The Ankara team is having a very disappointing season, struggling to reach the playoffs. However, they beat contenders for winning the regular season, Spor Toto, by a 3-1 (25-21, 25-13, 24-26, 26-24) but couldn’t improve their ranking in the standings (remained 7th). Spor Toto are 3rd but can drop to 4th place in case Arkas Spor defeat Galatasaray HDI Sigorta, tomorrow. Moldovan Dmitrii Bahov and 17-year-old Efe Bayram scored 17 points apiece for the winning side with the latter making 5 kill blocks. Brazilian Leonardo Nascimento “Leozinho” tallied 19 points for Spor Toto.

Tokat Belediye Plevne stunned Ziraat Bankası! The team that was last-placed prior to the match (progressed by one position after today’s win), came back from 0-2 to 3-2 against the giants of the country’s volleyball.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
