Brazilian League 2017/2018

  • Can anyone offer any insight into how seriously teams take these Paulista games? In other words, are they meaningful games or more like pre-season? Should we expect Naiane, Skowronska, Saraelen to play for Barueri tonight? And Tandara, Bia, Fabiola to play for Osasco tonight?

    Relatively seriously, I would say. Naiane, Saraelen, Tandara, Bia, Fabíola, they are all playing the playoffs already. The tournament is clearly more of a preseason preparation, but teams still want the win, even if it is just to dethrone Osasco. There is another Paulista tournament that is held before (Copa São Paulo), and that one is what I would say is meaningless.


    Skowronska will probably only debut next week in the Superliga.

    Nicole couldn't play due to a calf stress.

    If Camponesa/Minas wins, they got it. If Dentil/Praia Clube wins in straight sets or in four, they are the champions. In case Praia wins in five, it's decided on points average.

    SESC-RJ just need a win. If Fluminense wins, it goes to the golden set.

  • I've watched Praia-Minas: congratulations to Minas for the victory, but is still the beginning of the season, Superliga will be much more tough of course.


    The greatest difference between the two teams were the OHs: as the Opps weren't much of an issue, Rosamaria and Pri Daroit did much a better work than Amanda and Fè Garay.. Praia needs some power frm the OHs for the future! Also Carol Gattaz played great, so mature and experienced player: she has grown a lot in the last seasons.


    And Stefano Lavarini's portoguese is already so fluent :D

    Indeed. :thumbsup:


    Congratulations to Camponesa/Minas!!! :cup: One of the greatest teams in Brazil right now.


    Sad news
    Rio do Sul has given up playing Superliga due to financial issues. Renata Valinhos/Country will play instead.

  • so why is she not in the NT ?

    I'd have to ask ZRG.


    Gattaz is relatively old (she's 36 now) in terms of volleyball and Brazil has plenty of great MBs available for the NT, so she just got overshadowed I guess. She's only recently been experiencing some sort of revival in her career since joining Minas in 2014 too.
