In the second men's volleyball Super League match of the day, Dynamo from the Leningrad region will face off against Soligorsk's Shakhtar. Shakhtar The Belarusian club has returned to the elite division this season and it can't be said that they are lost among the serious competition. Starting the season with two consecutive defeats from the grandees: Kazan's Zenit (1:3) and Moscow's Dynamo (3:0), the Belarusians managed to balance wins and losses with matches against Kuzbass (3:2) and Ural (3:0). The balance was maintained afterwards too: three defeats (from Novosibirsk's Lokomotiv, St. Petersburg Zenit and Belogorie) and three victories over Yenisei, Gazprom-Ugra, and Nefteyannik.The Shakhtar only suffered defeats in the first part of the championship from teams significantly superior in class.In February, the Belarusian club won 3 out of 6 matches, including ones against Novosibirsk's Lokomotiv (3:0) and St. Petersburg Zenit (3:1). Dynamo LO Last season, Dynamo finished 6th in the Super League, losing in a five-match series to today's opponents.This regular season, Dynamo started with two consecutive victories. However, November was not too successful for the team from the Leningrad region: 4 defeats in 7 matches.However, in the last two matches, Dynamo surprisingly beat St. Petersburg Zenit (3:1) and Belgorod's Belagorie (2:3). They then clinched 6 more victories in a row, including one over their current opponent.These victories allowed the club to enter the top eight and significantly protect itself from play-outs.The 2024 calendar year, however, has been dismal for the team: one victory in nine matches and currently at 8th place. Head-to-Head In their first and so far only head-to-head match, Dynamo claimed victory (1:3) Match ptrdiction The Soligorsk team looks very good in February, while Dynamo is in a prolonged gaming crisis and its unclear how they will pull through. I think in this match, its worth considering the option of a handicap in favour of the visiting team.

The first quarter-final games are underway and such an event cannot be missed. Let's start with a game set to take place in Ankara, in the "Halkbank" sports complex, where the eponymous team will face Italian "Lube Civitanova". Last season, the clubs met at this same round and it was only thanks to a golden set that "Halkbank" progressed further. Let's see what this face-off holds, although again, it is unclear who will be the major favourite in the battle for the semi-finals. Halkbank The Turkish club is in excellent condition, improving with each match; hence it is considered a marginal favourite in the contest against Italian "Lube Civitanova". In Efer's League, Slobodan Kovac's volleyball players are leading, having outpaced Fenerbahce", albeit just by 2 points. Aside from that, "Halkbank" has the opportunity to win the Turkish Cup. The Ankara-based club has achieved much in the Champions League. Kovac's team had a hard time getting out of the group, but that shouldn't be surprising considering the tough opponents, apart from "Benfica". In the 1/8 finals, "Halkbank" passed "Kedzierzyn-Kozle" from Poland, losing the first game of the face-off with a score of (2:3), then winning at home (3:0) in the return match. "Halkbank" has a strong selection of volleyball players capable of aiming to win all the trophies in the season. Of the main players, Ervin Ngapet deserves a mention, with the addition of the not-too-shabby John Gordon Perrin, but overall, the whole team operates in harmony and there is almost no criticism to be made. "Halkbank" is the favourite for the first match against "Lube Civitanova", but the opponent is tough and highly variable, so even on their own court, Slobodan Kovac's volleyball players will have to play all their trump cards. Lube Civitanova The Italian club gained ground in the SuperLega, nonetheless, it trails behind "Perugia" and "Trentino" in the regular season. Despite a comfortable position in the championship table, Gian Lorenzo Blengini's volleyball players are striving in every SuperLega game. In the Champions League group, "Lube Civitanova" took first place. However, to be fair, the Italians came up against simple opponents, against whom they generally managed to play the role of favourite. Lube Civitanova is well-equipped. For instance, Mattia Bottolo has been playing effectively; Alexander Nikolov is consistently good and Ivan Zaytsev intermittently plays powerfully, although he often isn't at his very best. In the first match against "Halkbank", the Italians need to strategise more and try to surprise the opponent, otherwise we will see an all-too predictable victory for the Turkish team. Prediction for the match: Halkbank - Lube Civitanova I will place a bet on the negative handicap of Halkbank. At a minimum, the Turkish outfit should win this match 3:1.

The 21st round of the Polish PlusLiga is underway. "Barkom-Kazhany" is set to square off against "Zawiercie" on neutral ground at the "WOSiR" sports hall. The Ukrainian team occasionally brightens up their gloomy stay in the second group of playoff contenders with victories, while "Zawiercie" is now fully engaged in the PlusLiga and the Polish Cup, having been knocked out of the European cups. Barkom-Kazhany Just one victory over "Slepsk Suwalki" lifted the Ukrainians to the 11th spot. At the very least, Ugis Krastins's volleyball players need to look decent against their direct competitors. Failures have accompanied "Barkom-Kazhany" throughout the season, but I've noted that the team is quite decent, even if they don't always find success. Defeating "Slepsk Suwalki" on their turf with a score of (3:0) is great, although it may seem that the Ukrainian team hasn't done anything extraordinary. On the contrary, they pulled themselves together after two consecutive losses and managed to win against a direct competitor from the lower part of the table. Now "Barkom-Kazhany" begin a series of challenging opponents, so losses are likely to occur, and later will come a chance to make amends by winning a couple of matches against competitors of their level. The Ukrainian team boasts a number of good volleyball players. I sometimes do not praise Luciano Palonski, but he works wonderfully in attack and brings a lot of benefits to "Barkom-Kazhany". Naturally, Musse Gueye is still effective on the block, and diagonal Vasily Tupchiy is the leader in terms of points brought to his team, often receiving the MVP of the match, if the Ukrainians win. "Zawiercie", feeling tired and experiencing a dip, comes to "Barkom-Kazhany" after being knocked out of the ECV Cup. We'll see if the Ukrainians can step up their game, but they certainly should not shy away from their abilities. Zawiercie "Zawiercie" fell short in the golden set against "Resovia Rzeszow". Michal Winiarski's volleyball players played wonderfully during the main match, but there were not enough emotions for the main round, that's what they lacked at the crucial moment. In any case, "Zawiercie" looked decent in the ECV Cup and I even dared to call them the main favourites for the trophy. Now the focus must be on the PlusLiga, with a passing match in the Polish Cup, assuming that "Zawiercie" doesn't play too weakly against "Rudzinec" from the third Polish division. Mihal Winiarski's team continues to have a solid roster. Let's see whether the head coach of "Zawiercie" gives reserve players a chance to participate, but Karol Butrin, who hardly ever misses matches this season, is sure to be on the pitch. Bartosz Qwolek must show all his abilities, and Luke Perry will again try to produce good statistics in reception. "Zawiercie" should not have problems with "Barkom-Kazhany", but the disappointment after their failure in the ECV Cup might lead to a careless performance in the championship, or conversely, this match might pull Michal Winiarski's volleyball players out of their minor crisis, forcing them to play even better than before the loss to "Rzeszow". Head-to-Head In the first round, "Zawiercie" defeated "Barkom-Kazhany" (3:0), and only in one set did they allow their opponent to win. Prediction for the match: Barkom-Kazhany - Zawiercie If the Ukrainians step up their attack, they could expect to win at least one set, thus, I would opt for a bet with an plus handicap for the nominal hosts of this game.

Moving on to volleyball, more specifically, we'll cover a few matches from the 21st round of the Polish PlusLiga. The CEV Cup semi-finalist team "Resovia Rzeszw" will contend on their own turf with "Stal Nysa", a team that seems content with just the national championship. Resovia Rzeszw The most important thing is that "Resovia Rzeszw" has outplayed "Zawiercie". Their loss (0:3) in the main return match was predictable, as it seems the volleyball players of Gianpaolo Medei lured the opponent into being overconfident and terribly tired, losing the golden set (11:15). This victory in the Polish quarterfinal confrontation of the CEV Cup must have inspired the volleyball players of "Resovia Rzeszw". On such a surge, they can routinely outplay opponents in the PlusLiga, and they will need to march decently through the Polish Cup against "Luk Lubin", who is considered a strong middling team in the country's championship. Gianpaolo Medei will likely rotate his composition for a showdown with "Stal Nysa". First of all, the defenders need to be rested - they've been hard at work in the previous match. Secondly, the attack leaders need to be spared for the Polish Cup, where they must demonstrate excellent stats. If they approach the game against "Stal Nysa" correctly, there's no doubt that even in a slightly amended formation, "Resovia Rzeszw" ought to win. Stal Nysa Two successive victories in the championship have not cheered up the fans of "Stal Nysa". The team under the leadership of Daniel Plinski is still running neck and neck with the 2nd group of contenders for the playoffs - somewhere they would rather not fall. Yet over the course of this season, "Stal Nysa" has been winning a lot, often outpacing opponents from the lower part of the table, but they lack successful clashes with group leaders and things are not shaping up as needed with direct competitors: the recent losses to "Skra Bełchatw" and "Kędzierzyn-Koźle" are examples of this. "Stal Nysa" has a good but small lineup. We always note the work of Zouheir El Graoui and occasionally, Mateusz Muzaj shines, although his game was off at the beginning of the season. After losing to "Skra Bełchatw", he sustained an injury - his second this season. Though "Stal Nysa" is not one of the biggest clubs in PlusLiga, it's capable of reaching the playoffs with the leading group. It's tough to win against "Resovia Rzeszw", especially in an away game, but Daniel Plinski's volleyball players might at least not fail in this match, for example by winning 1 set. Head-to-Head In the 1st round, "Stal Nysa" put up a good match against "Resovia Rzeszw", but leading 2:1 in sets, Plinski's team began to feel the class of the opponent and lost the match. Match prediction: Resovia Rzeszw - Stal Nysa I will choose the plus handicap in points for "Stal Nysa". Gianpaolo Medei is certain to utilise a slew of changes - the opponent of "Resovia Rzeszw" is not that simple to outplay without difficulty, getting a 3:0 set win.

Resovia Rzeszow
The most tantalising quarter-final face-off in the CEV Cup has been dubbed the Polish battle between Zawiercie and Resovia Rzeszow. Following the triumph of Giampaolo Medei's squad on their home court at the Podpromie sports and entertainment complex, anticipation is growing as the "Jurassic Knights" need to regroup and win the return match, where a score of (3:1) would manage, although a clean victory would be ideal. Zawiercie Attention towards Zawiercie remains elevated, as this southern Polish club presents a formidable force in this current season, endeavouring to shine in all competitions. The loss (0:3) to Resovia Rzeszow continues to baffle, with many initially expecting an unblemished victory from the "Jurassic Knights". Something initially went awry for Michal Winiarski, who did not foresee the successful combinations from the opposition, nor their diagonals easily penetrating his players' blocks. A long-awaited defeat for Zawiercie finally came, albeit at an unfortunate timing in critical matches, and was followed by a casual triumph over Czarni Radom in the Plus League. Zawiercie boasts an impressively synergistic line-up. Looking to bolster their attack, Karol Butryn will again be put on the offensive - it would be great to see reliable defence in the showdown with Resovia Rzeszow, so Miguel Tavares Rodrigues must be spot-on in his role and Libero Luke Perry won't, hopefully, falter on the backline. Michal Winiarski's players have the potential to prevail in the return match against Resovia Rzeszow, provided they avoid a total collapse similar to the first game, which saw the entire squad largely unrecognisable. Resovia Rzeszow Giampaolo Medei's troops left a pleasant impression in the first match against Zawiercie in the CEV Cup quarterfinals. Particularly after suffering two consecutive losses in the Plus League, the players of Resovia Rzeszow seem to have propelled themselves boldly, failing to outmanoeuvre direct competitors, including Michal Winiarski's team, and ending up deflated in the confrontation with Jastrzebski Wegiel. The win against Zawiercie in the CEV Cup does not guarantee Resovia Rzeszow a semi-final slot, but it undoubtedly instils a psychological advantage. The key question is: how so? They must not let their guard down in the return match, considering the consistently commendable form of the opposition this season, having managed numerous 3:0 scores; in this case, 3:1 in favour of Zawiercie would suffice. In the Plus League, Resovia Rzeszow practically overcame Kedzierzyn-Kozle with ease in the previous round, experiencing a slight hiccup only in the third set. Even then, Medei's players projected confidence, despite lagging in score. Resovia Rzeszow possesses a powerful line-up. Always performing at utmost capacity, Steven Boyer deserves a mention, as does Jakub Kochanowski for his commendable efforts. The Polish defender takes on a significant chunk of the work, becoming a central figure in his team on the court in any match. Giampaolo Medeis players need not rest on their laurels but instead strive to entirely exclude playing by the score, otherwise, Zawiercie could seize the initiative and push the confrontation into a golden set. Head-to-Head In this season's Plus League, Resovia Rzeszow and Zawiercie have both overcome one another. Still, what matters is their performance in the CEV Cup and whether Michal Winiarski's team will exact revenge for their defeat in Podpromie. Match prediction: Zawiercie - Resovia Rzeszow The favourites here are Zawiercie, who need a (3:0) or (3:1) victory. Winiarski's players are likely to come through, so I'll opt for the clear win.

In the CEV Volleyball Cup, the remaining two quarter-final return matches will take place, followed by the semi-finalist draw. The Greek club AONS Milon will play against Luneburg. The first match between these teams ended in favour of the Germans with a score (3:0) in sets, making it quite intriguing to see if the hosts of the second match at the "Gymnasium Milona" can make up for this lead. AONS Milon In reality, the AONS Milon club does not have many laureates. In the last century, they were champions of Greece in volleyball in 1962 and 1964, and since then the club has shown modest results. At the present moment, AONS Milon is playing its 4th consecutive season in the country's Premier League andhas already achieved minor success by reaching the CEV Cup semi-final. AONS Milon is not having any issues in Greece's championship. The club is among the leaders and yet again vying for the Euro Cups. Competing with the three strong teams of the Premier League is not that simple for Sakis Psarras' volleyball players, but they manage to outplay those who are lower class. The CEV Cup started for AONS Milon at the 1/64 final, so the Greeks are going through the whole grid without being among the seeds. In all the battles, they had to give it their all, although there were some simple matches. Already in the 1/8 final against the German Dren, it seemed that the Greek team would have difficulties. Yes, in the return game AONS Milon lost (2:3) on their home turf, but the main objective was to maintain the advantage gained in Germany, where Psarras' volleyball players won with a difference of 2 sets. Then there was the French Nantes, with whom AONS Milon had an interesting rivalry, and it was the Greek club who had the upper hand. In the first game, Psarras' team led (2:0) in sets, but then Nantes made a comeback, but victory went to Milon. In the return match again a tight battle, which led to a 5th party, where the French barely won (19:17), but the golden set was taken by the Greek club, showing clarity in reception. The team is well-versed with Sakis Psarras. The spikers are powerful, for instance, Pedro Molina, who got a top statistical rating after the 1st game with Luneburg. Boyan Yordanov is also quite reliable, however, specifically against the German club in the semi-final, his performance didnt shine. The first "AONS Milon" party is required to feel confident in the victory. It will be hard to win against Luneburg even with a score (3:1), but fans will be pushing their volleyball players, and the players themselves should have learned from the defeat in the 1st match. Luneburg In the Bundesliga, Luneburg has the task of overtaking Berlin and not letting Friedrichshafen, which deprived the Hanseatic city team of the play-offs last season, get closer. The entire current season for Stefan Hbner's volleyball players is going in a swaying mode, when there are successes and failures. For example, in the German Super Cup, the Lower Saxony club failed to win even the bronze, and in the country's Cup, they were beaten by the same Berlin. In the Champions League, they failed to make the play-offs in tight competition, although there was no doubt that together with Jastrzębski Węgiel, Luneburg had more chances to leave the group through 2nd place. But everything is fine in the championship, although there are at least 3 competitors with whom Stefan Hbner's volleyball players cannot compete on equal terms: Friedrichshafen, TSV Giesen, and Berlin. Luneburg has a pretty good composition. Erik Rrs is almost always effective and again, he will be relied upon by the head coach of the Lower Saxony team. And the Canadian Jesse Elzer looks successful as a spiker - he was quite beneficial in the 1st game with the Greek club in the CEV Cup semi-final. In addition, the libero Gage Worsley is praised, who looked great in the 1st semi-final match of the European Cup battle. "Luneburg" should be progressing to the final because it's stronger than its 1/2 counterpart shown by assured home victory in its turf. If the Germans play no worse, they could win the return match. Head-To-Head In the 1st semi-final game, "AONS Milon" acted as an underdog, losing (0:3) and not showing anything of worth to Luneburg. Match prediction: AONS Milon - Luneburg Stefan Hbner's volleyball players should win the 2nd match of the confrontation skillfully, if not super convincingly. We'll take on win for Luneburg, who need to win again class-wise.

Turning our lens once again to the volleyball PlusLiga's 21st round of action, we have Norwid Częstochowa up against Olsztyn. The southern Polish club is a good way off from the leading eight, striving for a playoff spot in the Challenger Cup qualification group. As for the northern championship collective, they sit comfortably midpoint, but a slip against Norwid Częstochowa could see them tumble off course. Norwid Częstochowa Coach Lech Gudzjak's team is sliding dangerously close to the outsiders zone after a series of losses. While they may not spiral as far down as Czarni Radom, a losing streak can certainly send them back to the First League. There were glimpses of good volleyball from Norwid Częstochowa in the previous match against Stal Nysa, but the latter maintained a confident lead throughout set 5 (15:9) and emerged victorious. In terms of lineup, the southern Polish club can indeed rival their counterparts from Group 2 vying for the playoffs. Attacker Dawid Dulski consistently carries a significant point-load for his team. Norwid Częstochowa's blocking, courtesy of Bartosz Schmidt and Peter Hein, although not always spectacular, has made a valuable contribution. In defence, Thomas Kowalski and Rafal Sobanski have had commendable spells, even in unfamiliar positions. The match against Olsztyn carries weight for Norwid Częstochowa in many ways. Besides hopeful prospects of breaking into the leading eight, it's high time they claimed a victory, especially considering their streak of five consecutive defeats. A home-win against Olsztyn would be a springboard for future successes Olsztyn The team under coach Javier Weber gets underestimated at times, but on other occasions, they're recipients of premature compliments. For instance, no one expected Skra Bełchatw to take such a drubbing (0:3) on their home ground from this northern Polish club. And most thought Olsztyn had the upper hand against Stal Nysa, but it was a (2:3) upset in favour of Daniel Pliński's team opinions on who looked better during the match vary. Such inconsistency could risk a playoffs berth in the leaders' group, but Weber's carefully handpicked calendar allows for a couple of challenging face-offs alongside several battles that Olsztyn ought to win. Weber has a well-chosen lineup capable of achieving playoff qualification at the very least, and a plausible aspiration for a CEV Cup ticket. Standout performers for Olsztyn include the near-flawless defender Szymon Jakubiak and forward Alan Sousa, who has a strong case for joining a PlusLiga top club in the coming season. Olsztyn is entering a phase of crucial matches requiring class-act wins over adversaries. The match against Norwid Częstochowa is one such venue to demonstrate their superior volleyball level, with the fact of it being an away game against a lower-half opponent holding little bearing. Head-to-Head In the first round, Olsztyn managed a hard-fought victory over Norwid Częstochowa (3:1), even though they entered as overwhelming favourites. Match forecast: Norwid Częstochowa - Olsztyn Olsztyn must rise to the occasion and secure a win over opponents of this level. I'll back the favourites here with a handicap of (-1.5) sets for the match.

In the Polish PlusLiga volleyball league, the remaining matches of the 20th round will take place. Gdansk and Luk Lubin will meet on the field of the club in Northern Poland. They are next to each other in the table, so their meeting will be a mini-showdown for the 5th place in the championship. Gdansk If Gdansk had played a little more confidently this season, they might have been closer to Resovia Zeshuv in the table and further from Luk Lubin, which is playing the regular season at roughly the same pace, sometimes allowing lower-ranking championship teams to get the upper hand. The point is that Gdansk somehow managed to give away points to Kuprum, even though it seemed that after two super confident victories, Igor Yuricic's volleyball players would outplay one of the outsiders of this season's PlusLiga. The defending Gdansk side made many mistakes, the opponents played well, and Jake Haines was incredibly effective, becoming the MVP of the match. The Northern Poland team's calendar is packed with challenging confrontations, so they must pull themselves together and not allow a crisis that could deprive them of a playoff spot. The roster of Gdansk is decent, though not super powerful. Patrick Nemez is doing his best at the block - Jordan Zaleshchik has recovered from injury and already showed good individual statistics against Kuprum. In principle, Gdansk's defence is of high quality, but they seem to have claims against it when the team plays as the favourite. Gdansk will surely make it to the playoffs through the group of leaders - Yuricic's volleyball players should prepare for the confrontation in the Polish Cup with Yastrzhembsky Vegielem, by the way, this match will take place at the opponent's arena, to which Gdansk will arrive as an underdog. Gdansk needs to display smart volleyball against Luk Lubin with corrections made after the away game against Kuprum. Let's see what conclusions the "Northern Lions" have drawn. Politeckhnica Lubin Massimo Botti is doing well with the team from Lubin. The most important thing is that Politeckhnica has identified itself as the main contender for the playoffs from the group of regular season leaders - the team is well-coordinated and able to hold its own in the knockout stages. In the championship, Luk beats many opponents, and even when the opponent seems too good, the team from Lubin nonetheless finds ways to outplay them. An example could be the last round's battle with Skra Belchatow, when it seemed that on many indicators the guests could outdo Luk, but the opposite happened, with all the stats against one of the most popular clubs in Poland. In Lubin team's schedule, there are many interesting and simultaneously challenging confrontations, including a battle with Resovia Zeshuv in the Polish Cup. Naturally, they can't focus all their attention on the secondary tournament, because Luk could still find itself outside the group of leaders, with competitors like Skra Belchatow and Kedzhegin-Kozle trailing behind, capable of stepping up in the second round of the PlusLiga. Amongst Massimo Botti's team, it's worth highlighting the main leader of attack, Mateusz Malinovsky - Damian Schultz was also confident, even though his start of season had been lacklustre, he now looks flawless in many championship matches. Luk Lubin's defence is reliable. There's Marcin Komenda and quality libero Falen Hoss, and a decent block, in which Jan Novakowski and Marcin Kania stand out amongst others, often praised by the team coach. Luk Lubin is okay, but the trip to Gdansk won't be as straightforward as the game against Skra Belchatow, where everything went Massimo Botti's way volleyball players. It's not necessarily a five-set match, but certainly an equal one, as the teams are close in the table and there's no absolute favourite for this match, to whom one could invest big money in right now. Head-to-Head In the first round, Politeckhnica Lubin defeated Gdansk (3:2), with both teams being very equally matched, even exchanging sets with identical scores. Prediction for the match: Gdansk vs. Luk Lubin I'll choose an usual bet. Perhaps Gdansk could win confidently, if it improves its attack and avoids the mistakes we saw in the previous match.

Today, in the return match of the 1/8 Champions League volleyball, Spanish team Guaguas will play against Czech team Lvi Praha. Lvi Praha Heading into the return match of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League volleyball, Lvi Praha faces a challenging task to restore spirit after a heavy defeat from Guaguas, which ended their impressive 11-game winning streak. In that match, the Czech team fought in each set, bringing the score to 23:24, but lost despite a strong finish, especially in the first set, where they recovered from a deficit of more than 5 points. In the group stage of the Champions League (CL), Lviv performed well, finishing with a 3-3 result and conceding to Lube Civitanova from Italy.In the Czech national championship, the team dominates, occupying the top spot with 17 wins and only 2 losses, surpassing their closest pursuers Kladno and Liberec. Recent matches in the championship underline their strength: a confident win over Brno with a score of 3:0, a tense struggle with Prsibram ending in a 3:2 victory, as well as successful games against Ceske-Budejovice and Liberec with scores of 3:1.Lvi Praha is approaching the upcoming European challenge with a strong national campaign behind them, though they need to rethink their strategy after their recent international defeat. Gwagwas The Spanish volleyball team Guaguasheads into the return match of the 1/8 Champions League finals with confidence, thanks to their convincing 3:0 victory over Lvi Praha in the first game. During this meeting, Gwagwas demonstrated their ability to turn the tide of the game during the finals, particularly noticeable in the first set, where leading by 23:17, they gave no chance for a comeback to their opponents. Now, to proceed to the quarterfinals, they only need to win a single set.On the international level, Guaguas faced difficulties, notably suffering a defeat from Ceske-Budejovice and finishing the Champions League group stage with a 3-3 result, preventing them from taking the top spot in the group. Losses from Jastrzębski Węgiel and Luneburg emphasised these difficulties.However, on a national level, Guaguas demonstrates quite different results, confidently holding the first place in the Spanish championship with 16 wins and only 1 loss. A string of 11 victories in the last 12 matches confirms their domination in the national championship, despite recent games being quite challenging for them. Head-to-Head The rivals played a very hard-fought match in the first meeting, but you wouldn't tell by the 3:0 score in favour of the Spanish club. Match forecast Lvi Praha - Guaguas The Prague club had no official matches after the heavy defeat, whereas Gwagwas beat Unicaja 3:1. I think, if the Spaniards take the first set, they will introduce their second lineup, because after securing their spot in the quarterfinals, the Czechs, who have been playing decent volleyball, can still pull off a victory, albeit not with a score of 3:0 given the first match, this is an unlikely result. However, home ground is always an advantage.

In the 17th round of the Italian SuperLega, an intriguing match between Monza and Trentino will take place at the "Opikvad Arena". Massimo Eccheli's team currently sits in 7th position in the championship, whilst the northern Italian club leads the competition, albeit closely contested by Perugia for the top spot in the league. Monza For Massimo Eccheli's side, this is a season which could have seen two major successes. Regrettably, they succumbed to Perugia in the Italian Cup A1 final, despite brilliantly outrunning Trentino in the semi-finals. The remaining prospects lie in the championship and the Challenge Cup, where they have the upper hand against Galatasaray ahead of the away match. As for the championship, it's fairly straight forward: finish the remainder of the regular season without significant blunders in order to make the playoffs, where they could potentially earn a ticket to the CEV Cup and possibly cast a line towards the Champions League. Monza boasts a strong line-up this season, capable of winning a European trophy and accomplishing the minimum target in the SuperLega - to reach the playoffs. Striker Steven Maar, often recognised as the MVP of multiple matches, such as the game against Galatasaray, stands out consistently in the championship. Artur Schwartz also closely follows his position, consistently delivering valuable points for his team. Notably, Monza's defence is highly regarded across Italian sports radio. The odds on Monza's victory under the leadership of Massimo Eccheli may have probably been underestimated before the match against Trentino. Nevertheless, Monza remains quite competent and could potentially surprise the SuperLega leader once again. Trentino Securing a regular season championship is prestigious, but for Trentino, the focus lies on preparing for the Champions League playoffs. As they wait for a quarter final opponent in the European cups, amplified attention can be aimed towards SuperLega where complications are absent but the challenge to secure the throne until the championship playoffs is present. In the Italian Cup, Trentino could have potentially defeated Monza, but their opponents played too conservatively - every player in Massimo Eccheli's team was prepared to give no quarter and at the very least showcase their abilities against the semi-final's and overall competition's favourite. In terms of line-up, Trentino outshines many European teams, thus Favio Soli's athletes are considered favourites in every tournament they participate in. Among the key forwards of this team, Alessandro Michelotto stands out as one of the strongest strikers in the world. Furthermore, Camille Rychlicki is in good form, at times even surpassing Micheletto in individual performance. Trentino is a strong team, which occasionally allows themselves to fumble. The clash with Monza won't be easy, but if Soli's team aims to maintain 1st place in the league table, they need to win this match. Head-to-Head In the first round of SuperLega, Trentino managed to produce quality performance against Monza on home turf. However, in the Italian Cup, the championship leaders fell short against the Lombard side, despite the latter not holding a substantial advantage. Match prediction: Monza - Trentino Trentino is expected to redeem themselves from the previous failures in the Italian Cup. Therefore, I'll wager on Trentino win. Even if Soli's team ends up being overtaken, it could happen in one set.

In the second match of the Women's Volleyball Super League game day, the underdogs "Minchanka" and "Atom-Kursk" will go head to head. Minchanka Minsk The Belarusian club is, unfortunately, experiencing one of its worst seasons to date, boasting only 2 victories in the regular championship so far. Given the altered format of the competition, the team runs the risk of losing their Super League spot in the playoff games should they remain in their current next-to-last place. Their sole victories to date have come consecutively in two November matches against their current adversary (1:3) and a home game against Zarechye-Odintsovo (3:2). Post-New Year, Minchanka's only notable achievement was a hard-fought tie-breaker in a match against Krasnoyarsk's Enisey. Atom Kursk Atom Kursk started off their previous season strong, breaking out of the group stage of the Russian Cup, and being the only team from the Higher League A to overcome the preliminary stage. This accomplishment was noted by the regional administration, which then set an ambitious goal for the team led by Yuri Tokarev: winning the Higher League A. The team managed to win 4 out of 5 matches in the tour and essentially secured the Higher League A championship and subsequent promotion to the Super League after defeating Severyanka on the second game day.In the off-season, Atom-Kursk underwent significant changes, with only Victoria Ivanova, Polina Syrkina, and Ekaterina Rozenkop remaining from the previous roster. Over the course of the season, the team has been reinforced by Victoria Sekretova from Zarechye and the club's first-ever foreign player, Evilania Martinez. However, Atom Kursk has yet to claim their first Super League victory. The team came closest in a home game against Zarechye-Odintsovo. After winning the first two sets, they conceded the remaining sets and were forced to settle for a single point. In subsequent matches, the Kursk club managed to take only two sets from ten games. Head-to-Head The teams last faced off within the first round of the Super League regular season. On this occasion, Atom Kursk suffered a 1:3 defeat. Match prediction For this match, I believe the visitors may have a chance of forcing a fourth set, and potentially even a tie-break. Both teams are struggling at the moment, and I do not foresee a massive victory for Minchanka today.

We're heading over to the south-west of Poland, where the volleyball club Stal Nysa resides. This club is on the brink of joining the contenders for the Challenge Cup, but it's clear that team coach, Daniel Pliński, has his sights set on gaining more significant European cup tickets. In the 20th round, the southwestern team is set to play a home game against Norwid Częstochowa, a team that sits in the lower part of the PlusLiga table and hardly hopes to be among the championship's main leaders. Stal Nysa The club Stal Nysa has grown used to series of losses - the southwestern Polish team has been beaten only by strong opponents. The start of the year was a repeat of the season's start, with Pliński's players failing important matches, such as losing in class matches against Jastrzębski Węgiel or the impressive Zawiercie. In the last round, Stal Nysa won against Olsztyn, having mirrored the 1st round 3:2 defeat by Pliński's volleyball players. It was a nerve-wracking match, but ultimately, the nuances decided the outcome. We've noted that Daniel Pliński's player roster is not the most grandiose. Zuheir El Graoui stands out - a master "beach" player who is also effective in standard volleyball, as evidenced by his individual statistics. Timofey Zhukovsky is often praised, and in my opinion, he's a strong defender and a smart playmaker. Stal Nysa is aiming to convincingly act as the favourite in order not to fall from the 8th spot in the table; even better if further advancement is possible. Against Norwid Częstochowa, victory is necessary, especially since Daniel Pliński's players are significantly stronger. Norwid Częstochowa The southern Polish club often struggles in games where there's a need for victories. It's hardly surprising that "Norwid Częstochowa" is in its position in the PlusLiga table, but the team is quite good despite what the media may write. At the start of the new year, Leszek Gudzjak's volleyball players won only one game against "Gdansk," and no one bet on "Norwid Częstochowa," but they convincingly won by the score of 3:1. Before that, they had beaten "Luk Lubin" who lead the pack; then came the losses. In three of the last four matches of the southern Polish club, logical failures were observed, with "Project Warsaw", "Zawiercie" and "Jastrzębski Węgiel" winning as favourites. The match against "Slepsk Suwalki," however, was a disaster, with "Norwid Częstochowa" only starting to play as necessary in the third set. Leszek Gudzjak's team has an interesting line-up. There is a good finisher, Rafal Sobanski, but he hasn't been showing his best game in the new year - though he should. David Dulski, on the other hand, deserves praise as he almost always performs at his maximum. Norwid Częstochowa doesn't have big prospects to make it into the European cups this season. They need to decently get through the 2nd round to make it into the play-offs through the group competing for the Challenge Cup spot. In the match against Stal Nysa, it will be challenging in all directions; therefore, Norwid Częstochowa is not considered a significant contender to win this match. Head-to-Head In the 1st round, Stal Nysa beat Norwid Częstochowa with a score of 3:0, and all sets were won by Daniel Pliński's volleyball players with an advantage. Match prediction: Stal Nysa - Norwid Częstochowa The only viable option here implies a confident victory for Stal Nysa. The handicap of (-1.5) sets on Pliński's team is perfect for this match.

The 20th round of the PlusLiga volleyball kicks off. We'll start with a clash in Belchatow, where local team Skra hosts the club Olsztyn from the ancient northern city of Poland. Skra Belchatow Andrea Gardini's collective must defend its position in the top eight. Currently, it is quite shaky for Skra, as competitors are closely pressing and a couple of failures could push the team back into the second group of playoff contenders, where less prestigious clubs such as "bees" reside. The away game of the previous round against Luk Lubin did not work out for Skra. Only in the second set did something resembling Gardini volleyballists' true potential start to emerge, but the rival played excellently and still managed not to allow the "bees" to catch up. The score (0:3) just indicates that the club from Belchatow did not engage immediately, then lost the key set and failed the third party, presumably under negative emotions. By the time of this defeat, Skra had a series of victories, with all lower table competitors defeated, but there is still uncertainty whether Gardini's volleyball players will look effective in the playoff contenders group through the top eight. There are no questions to the Italian coach regarding the team, he is arguably making good use of the available player volume. Davida Konarski was missing in the last game due to injury, I think he will be absent against Olsztyn as well. Bartlomey Lemanski is often very good on the block, although he has not been very productive for two games in a row. In attack, Bartolomei Lipinski is very hard-working, even in the previous match with Luk Lubin, he was one of the best in Skra's line-up. A victory at home against Olsztyn will allow Andrea Gardini's team to stay in the top eight, while a defeat could push them back, so the "bees" have ample motivation to maintain their position among the playoff contenders, where European Cup tickets are played for Olsztyn Again, Javier Weber's volleyball players lost (2:3) this time already to the club "Stal Nysa". The match started well for Olsztyn, but then a close set was lost with a score of (28:30) and then a decline until the fourth set when the south-western club of Poland started to fumble in attack and Daniel Plinski's players' serve stopped hitting. Still, in the decisive set, Olsztyn looked mediocre until the score was (7:7), and then started to falter because of Patrick Sshurik's services. This defeat became the 5th in a row for Javier Weber's team, moreover, this year, Olsztyn has only managed to defeat "Projekt Warszawa". The situation needs to be rectified for the north-east club of Poland; otherwise, they may not make it into the main playoff contenders group and have to settle for the chance of winning a ticket to the Challenge Cup. The Olsztyn schedule includes a couple of tough opponents, including Skra Belchatow, but most of the teams that Javier Weber's volleyball players are due to play are within their strength level. Olsztyn has a good squad, there's always someone to praise. In the position of a central blocker, Cezar Sapinski is powerful, working with him is Simon Jakubisak, highly praised by many Polish volleyball experts. In the attack, as always, Alan Souza is good, and Manuel Armoa sometimes replaces him, although the Argentinean does not always have effective matches. Defender Joshua Tuiniga performs well, plus there's the other attacking player, Nicolas Sherken, who isn't always brilliant, but sometimes very effective in his position. Weber's team needs this victory over Skra Belchatow, but obtaining it will be problematic, given Olsztyn's current indicators as a whole. Nevertheless, it is not fair to consider the north-east Polish club as an underdog of this confrontation. Head-to-head In the 1st round, Olsztyn lost on its home ground to Skra Belchatow, even though the hosts were dubbed the favourites of the match. Match prediction: Skra Belchatow - Olsztyn The best bet would be the total of more than 4 sets in this game, which is expected to be evenly matched and it's conceivable that the teams could play all 5 sets.
