There has been no rival that could measure up with Halkbank in the 2021/22 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship so far.
Halkbank kept their invincibility in the 2021/22 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi even after 10 rounds. The club from Ankara swept Yeni Kızıltepe, with 24 points from Cuban Fernando Hernández (67% attack), four blocks from Oğuzhan Karasu, and 88% (16 digs, 25% perfect) reception from Argentine Nicolás Bruno. Halkbank are, as it is clear, at the top of the charts with 10-0.
One of the two teams (the other one is Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta) that closely follow Halkbank in the standings, Ziraat Bankkart, was also successful in this round, sweeping Avşar Maden Suyu Afyon Bld. Yüntaş. Both Ziraat and Fenerbahçe have 24 points, four points less than Halkbank.
Arkas downed Spor Toto in the big match, easier than expected: 3-0 (25-16, 25-21, 25-22), thus taking advantage of yesterday’s surprising defeat of Galatasaray HDI Sigorta to level with them at 21 points and get in front of them in the charts, settling at the fifth position.
