The biggest Brazilian women’s club volleyball classic at the moment – the Minas Gerias classic, also known as ’clássico pão de queijo’ (the cheese bread classic – a typical Brazilian snack originally from the state of Minas Gerais) – went in favor of Praia. After winning the first set of the Round 5 match of the 2022–23 Superliga 1XBET Feminina, the team from Uberlândia saw the titleholders get to 2-1 but reacted and turned it around to 3-2. Interestingly, both sides had one set in which they managed to catch up with the rival’s huge lead (Praia coming back from 3-9 in the first set and Minas coming back from 10-16 in the third set). With the result, the vice-champions remained undefeated (6-0), while Minas suffered their second defeat, both coming in a row, and are third in the charts.

Tainara Santos from Praia was the highest scorer in the classic with 22 points. Ana Carolina Silva ’Carol’ set up 5 blocks. Kisy Nascimento scored 15 points for Minas, including 5 blocks, while Dominican Yonkaira Peña had 74% reception (42 digs, 1 error, 45% excellent).
