The women’s national champions from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Slovenia open the MEVZA League programme later this week. ZOK Bimal-Jedinstvo BRCKO hosts Nova KBM Branik MARIBOR at the JU Gimnazija hall on Friday evening. The away team wants to seize the opportunity to draw level with current competition leaders and national rivals Calcit Volley KAMNIK, while Bimal-Jedinstvo stand the chance to move up to second place in the standing.
This coming Saturday, GEN-I Volley NOVA GORICA (SLO) and their neighbours in the women’s MEVZA League table OK KASTELA (CRO) face each other, while UOK Banjaluka Volley BANJA LUKA (BIH) and Mladost ZAGREB (CRO) are gearing up for the closing match of the fifth round on Sunday. The hosts are still waiting for their maiden point for the standing after three matches they have contested in their first MEVZA League campaign so far. On the other hand, Croatia’s national champions suffered three defeats in a row after winning their opening match against KASTELA almost one month ago.
Men’s MEVZA League: last season’s finalists clash in Bleiburg
Three matches of the men’s MEVZA League are due to take place on Saturday evening. Competition leaders and titleholders ACH Volley LJUBLJANA (SLO) lock horns with last season’s silver medallists SK Zadruga AICH/DOB (AUT) at the JUFA Arena in Bleiburg. Third-ranked Calcit Volley KAMNIK (SLO) hope to get back on track at Mladost BRCKO (BIH). The Slovenian side had to cope with a disappointing setback, as their winning streak ended at the hands of underdogs Union Raiffeisen WALDVIERTEL (AUT) this past weekend. Austria’s national league runners-up aim their second MEVZA League win this season against bottom of the table OK MARIBOR (SLO).
