The teams are now known, which are participating in this competition, CEV announces here:
There are 23 teams on board now, certainly influenced at least partly due to Corona, with very few very weak teams this time. They will be attended by nine losers of CL qualification, where up to two good teams can come from, therefore we will have a full 32 teams table without bys:
Best team is supposed to be Monza, the only Italian team. Aside them relevant strength can be expected by the following too IMHO:
from Germany: Dresden and Potsdam
from Turkey: Galatasaray
from Poland: Legionowo
from Russia: Saratov
Also not to be underrated are the two teams each from Romania, Targoviste and Bacau, as the two French teams Béziers and Volero (Le Cannet).
The (potential) descendors from CL, which are the strongest, are either Lodz (LKS Commercecon, to be precise) or Stuttgart and likely also Minsk.
