The “banking“ derby marked Round 15 of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.



After the disappointing beginning of the season, Ziraat Bankası have seriously returned to the battle for the top spot in the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. In the “banking“ derby, they broke the resistance of Halkbank in the tie-break, prolonging the agony of the most-titled male club (out of the existing ones) in Turkey: 3-2 (25-18, 22-25, 25-20, 18-25, 15-13). Cuban Yadrian Escobar shone for the winning side with 30 points and tied with Arkas Spor’s Adis Lagumdžija at the top of the scorer’s list at 314 points. Metin Toy delivered 20 points for Halkbank who remained 7th in the charts. Ziraat moved to the 5th place but now with only 6 points less than the leaders Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta.

By claiming victories today, Spor Toto and Arkas Spor tied at 32 points in the 3rd and 4th place in the standings, respectively.
