There are no more undefeated teams in the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.



Led by Cuban Yadrian Escobar (20 points), Ziraat Bankası inflicted a heavy defeat to Galatasaray HDI Sigorta in Round 7 of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season: 3-0 (33-31, 25-18, 25-18). This was the first failure of Galatasaray this season, who was the only team without a single defeat prior to this round, after six wins. Now both Galatasaray and Ziraat have 6-1 and 17 points but the latter has settled at the top position in the charts due to a better set-ratio.

Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta joined the above-mentioned teams with 6-1 record and 17 points after outplaying Spor Toto on the road in the tie-break: 3-2 (25-11, 22-25, 20-25, 26-24, 15-10). The losing side suffered the second defeat in a row, a series that came after 5-0 record, which put them on the top of the charts at that time. The negative streak of Spor Toto coincided with the departure of their top scorer Daudi Okello. The Ugandan went to play in South Korea. The Dutchman Wouter Ter Maat highlighted for Fenerbahçe with 25 points. Argentinean Nicolás Bruno scored 22 for Spor Toto.
