After Jiangsu and Shanghai, the remaining two teams that secured advancement to the playoff semifinals of the 2019/20 Super League are Shandong and Zhejiang.
Actually, these two met in the last round of the quarterfinal stage in Pool F and Shandong’s win of 3-0 (25-14, 25-18, 25-21) was the outcome that went into the favor of both. Zhai Dejun top-scored for the winning side, who claimed the top spot in the pool, with 12 points, while Zhang Donzheng made 4 kill blocks. Today, Fujian couldn’t count on their top scorer Zhang Jingyin, who was given a chance to fully heal the injury and get ready for the semifinals.
Due to the above-mentioned result, vice-champions Beijing are out of the battle for the title. They achieved a victory against Fujian of 3-0 but won’t be taking part in the playoff semifinals for the first time since the 2010/11 season.
