Brazil: Escobar (and COVID) destroy Taubatè. Minas wins 3-0 recovery match of Round 151 min read
The second big match of Round 15 was recovered in the European night. Led by 25 points (67% in attack, 1 block and 4 ace) of Cuban opposite Escobar (MVP of the match), Minas defeated Funvic Taubaté 3-0, who appeared very far from the best condition (including Joao Rafael, with 35% in attack). Due to the covid, the formation of coach Weber (forced to field Mauricio Borges again in the role of libero and the fourth middle-blocker Bruno Biella), had to play without starters Lucas and Thales and also the reserves Rapha, Riad and Yudi, while for the opposite Felipe Roque this was first match as starters after contracting the virus.
