Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta narrowly avoided an upset by the newcomers Altekma in Round 2 of the 2020/21 Turkish men’s volleyball Championship.


The newcomers Altekma were so close to stunning the last official Turkish champions and first placed side on the charts at the moment of the cancellation of the last season, Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta. Altekma had 2-0 in sets in Round 2 of the 2020/21 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season but succumbed to the visiting side in the tie-break: 3-2 (22-25, 26-28, 25-20, 25-17, 15-12).

The backup opposite hitter on the winning side Arinze Kelvin Nwachukwu top-scored in the match with 21 points. The 18-year-old Nigerian player took his place on the court instead of Metin Toy in the third set and showed his potential. Canadian Graham Vigrass and Emre Batur made 5 blocks each. Cuban Salvador Hidalgo made 71% reception (39 % perfect). Oğuzhan Tarakçı and Brazilian Hugo Hamacher scored 13 points apiece for Altekma. Ahmet Tümer set up 5 blocks.

Probably the most retarded sport federation in the whole of Europe, full of grandpas like Boričić making proft without any useful deeds. Another 4 frutiful years of stealing the clubs money. Taking a look at the CEV website layout says it all. Reply
