CEV Champions League 2018

  • Imoco 3:1 Agel (25:14, 21:25, 25:16; 25:17)
    Best scorer Samanta Fabris with 22 points (55%in attack)(Amazing 4th set with 8/7 in attack)
    Amazing Robin with 18 points (81%in attack)


    Bad day for Bricio but She will be just fine. Can't wait for Folie come back, We will watch even faster Conegliano...

  • Who's the slider from Prostejov? Impressive spiking performance, credits to Weiss too.


    Imoco wasn't impressive at all. Way behind Dinamo-Kazan, Galatasaray and VakifBank.


    Wolosz's magic moment keeps going.

  • There's no point watching this match. I move to Stuttgart-Olomouc CEV Cup match.


    I'm very sorry, but Czech vice champions and second in the Extra league and current national cup winners Olomouc are not up the task against a Bundesliga top team - too vulnerable reception (Julia Schäfer alone damaged their reception a lot) and too feeble attackers, you can't win only with their two decent middles (national team member Struskova and the Bundesliga experienced Sajdova) alone against a team like Stuttgart. So aside from the little drama our players created out of the meaningless third set (regarding ko system) this was not very interesting to watch.

  • Prostejov is a CL experienced team, if you let them in, they are always capable of taking a set even from superiour teams. And that performance of Conegliano was also not one of their best so far. But at least they could avoid losing a point for the table.

  • It was mainly a good performance of opposite Kaja Grobelna, which helped Budowlani Lodz not to lose even higher, 20 points and 42% attack efficiency are clearly not bad against a monster block-and-field defending team like VakifBank.

    I noticed. I left in the middle od the first set: the streaming camera (too close to the court) sucked: I couldn't even watch the 2 teams and their defensive moves because it couldn't grab the whole court. :down:

    you mean Herelova? yes, she is small but a very solid player, she almost switched to beachvolleyball 1 year ago..finally she gets chances in Prostejov, before she was only bench player

    That's the usual poor Bundesliga minimum streaming quality. We (or Dresden or Schwerin) will unlikely offer better streaming due to cost reasons... sorry.

  • Wow today is the match between Novara and Fenerbahce. Like I said every set is important. And I'm sure if Novara show what they can do they can beat Fenerbahce.


    Lets go Novara :box:


    The betting sites see Fenerbahce as clear cut favourite (quotes are about 1.2 to 3.7).

  • Plak has been playing at a very high level. Egonu needs to cut down on her mistakes. Enright or Piccinini need to have a big game. All coming together at once for the Italian win in five. A Novara loss probably puts them out of contention to advance unless they host. This match should tell us how much KYK10's impact has been on Fenerbaches success.

  • I feel like Egonu will be very important, she needs to have a beast performance. The bookies see FB as the clear fave and so do I to be honest. Plak is a great player and in form but she gets blocked quite easily. Eda (and Dicle) will have no problem to shut her off if she plays as usual. Egonu makes a lot of errors as we all know however she is q world class player, if she plays her match she can help her team(s) beat anyone. Nonethelless we will have a great match today I believe and one that possibly could reveal a lot about how Italian teams will do next to Turkish clubs and Kazan

  • Because of bet site, I can't have faith in Novara to beat Fener ? LOL :lol:


    No, I just reported about the values. And I agree, the chance of an exploit for Novara against Fenerbahce is more likely than the betting sites suggest. But Fenerbahce is still clear-cut favourite, as most here agree.
