After a Golden Set, Czech’s ČEZ Karlovarsko went to the third qualifying round of the CEV Men’s Champions League Volley 2022, an excellent performance breaking in the volleyball sports news. The club from Karlovy Vary lost 2-3 to CSM Arcada Galați in Romania in the first leg, yet the Jiří Novák’s charges dealt with the drama, beating the adversaries with a similar score at home, and in this way won the conclusive gold set 15-10. Patrik Indra featured Karlovarsko with 30 points.
Because of a double straight-set victory over Bosnia’s Mladost Brčko, Greece’s Olympiacos Piraeus made it to the following round.
The rematch between Finland’s Ford Levoranta Sastamala and Dutch Draisma Dynamo Apeldoorn could be sensational among Karlovarsko and Arcada, mainly when Dynamo took the third set. However, VaLePa players, particularly Antti Sakari Mäkinen/25 points/ were not in the mood for a golden set. They took the fourth set by which they overhauled a 3-2 success from the primary leg.
Taking another 3-1 triumph against Estonia’s Bigbank Tartu, driven by Brazilian André Ryuma ‘Japa’ 22 points and Ivo Casas 86 % reception/22 digs, 64 % excellent/, Portugal’s Sport Lisboa e Benfica progressed to the third round.
