Al Ahly holds the record for the most titles to date, winning 32 in their history and a further 21 titles in the Egyptian Cup. They have also now won three in succession and 14 since the turn of the century. It is clear that they are the dominating force of Egyptian volleyball at present and it is why they continue to be so well supported each season, with threats each year coming from the likes of rivals Zamalek.

Al Ahly came into the current season with high expectations of success, following them winning the title last season. This saw them finish with 60 points from their 22 matches played, winning 20 and losing just 2. It included them winning 62 sets, whilst losing just 12. It meant they finished just two points clear of El Zamalek, who also finished with 20 wins from their 22 matches played. It therefore set up for an exciting 2020/21 season, with punters getting involved on the Egyptian sports betting market, which is growing fast thanks to the increasing presence of sites like Arabianbetting.com that help bettors find the best opportunities by reviewing operators and comparing their offers. This included on the Egyptian Volleyball league, with Al Ahly starting as the favourites to defend the title. This now looks money well placed, based on the current standings moving into the latter period of the campaign.

Al Ahly are also coming off the back of a recent important victory over Tersana away from home in the league. This was also despite them missing one of their star players in spiker, Ahmed Salah. It was a very one-sided affair, with the Red Devils completely dominating the match and winning in straight sets. This saw the match finish 25-15, 25-17 and 25-23. It was also all the more important for the side, as it pushed them back to the top of the table, with them reaching 31 points, which also meant they drew two points clear of their arch rivals Zamalek.

Al Ahly have also now played 11 games in the competition and their only loss had come recently against Petroject, which led some people thinking that they are unlikely to defend their title this season. However, they have bounced right back from this defeat and returned back to the top of the table and have shortened further to go on and land the title again. The side were also coming off the back of a massive recent victory, when beating their rivals Zamalek in straight sets. It was a very impressive performance, which also ended the unbeaten record of Zamalek and further pushed the chances of Al Ahly for the current season.

Al Ahly is now looking ahead to the rest of the campaign and these recent successes having given them a real chance of defending their title. The upcoming fixture will now see them face a tough challenge against Smouha, while their rivals Zamalek will be taking on Qanah.

I have for you great advice how to make money in volleyball as referee. You can make decent money if you follow my advice. Moreover you can be part of the game and enjoy extra bonuses.

We need referees in volleyball, without them our game would have no order. We would argue many times that the opponent’s blocker was in the net, that the ball was out or the scoreboard isn’t showing the correct result. Of course sometimes we argue with referees too and then we face yellow or red cards.

But should you give Volleyball betting a try?

We think you and every sport enthusiast should. Down here are some reasons why you should bet on volleyball.

Reasons to Bet on Volleyball

Bookkeeping companies had to break a sweat to meet the demands of Volleyball betting. Such effort for one sport! It should be worth it. Here are some reasons why you should try betting on Volleyball.

  • Different than Other Sports

Volleyball is a very different type of sport from other types of sports. Like other sports, it doesn’t need any big field to play. Just a moderate size space of a tennis yard and you are good to go.

In such a small space, two teams are competing against each other. You will surely catch some breathtaking actions in it. So if you want to try something new and exciting, you should try Volleyball betting.

  • A Huge Number of Matches

Volleyball is played by over 800 million people around the globe. They compete in different levels of leagues and tournaments. From national and pro to semi-pro and amateur.

Moreover, there are two variations of this wonderful sport. Indoors and beach volleyball. There is always a volleyball match going around the world. Sometimes multiple volleyball matches are taking place at the same time. Because of this large number of matches, there is always something to bet on in Volleyball betting.

  • Popularity

Surveys of NCVA show that over 800 million people around the world are actively playing volleyball and the number is still growing. The number of viewers of volleyball matches is also increasing exponentially as does the number of bets daily.

The bookkeeping companies are trying their best to feed the demands of punters who are betting on volleyball. As a highly popular game, regular odds won’t satisfy it. That is why bookkeeping companies have to come up with better odds and offers in volleyball matches. They also include bonuses. If you are lucky, you can get your hands on these lucky bonuses.

If you are a knowledgeable volleyball fan, your knowledge might give you an upper hand and that is our next reason why you should bet on volleyball.

  • Lack of Information

Volleyball may have risen in popularity but it has not been explored as much as other sports like football, cricket, and basketball. As a result, the fans and bookkeeping companies do not know much about the team, their strengths, and the top players.

This lack of coverage in sports can turn into your weapon if you do your research on the teams. If you manage to do that, you can correctly predict which team will win and choose the right odds.

You can even win bonuses. Your knowledge and research will pay off in volleyball betting. So if you are looking for a place to utilize your “nerdism”, volleyball betting might be the perfect spot.

Easy Rules

One of the reasons that volleyball got popular in the first place was its easy rules. Viewers with little knowledge can sit down and enjoy a volleyball match and understand it just the way an expert would. This easy understandability of volleyball makes it easy to bet on.

As it is a very easy sport, you can give it a try anytime you want. Trying new different things won’t kill you, would it?

Conclusion

So these were some of the reasons why you should try betting on volleyball. It is easy and there is always a volleyball match going on around the world. And if you can perform some moderate research on the playing teams and know their strengths, you would be able to easily pick the right odd and win the bonuses if possible. So, wait no more and give volleyball betting a try!

Is Jenia Grebennikov Volleyball’s Best Male Libero? https://volleycountry.com/players/is-jenia-grebennikov-volleyballs-best-male-libero Wed, 24 Mar 2021 11:41:50 +0000 https://volleycountry.com/?p=30024 Since turning professional in 2008, Jenia Grebennikov has established himself as one of volleyball’s best players of the modern era.

Since turning professional in 2008, Jenia Grebennikov has established himself as one of volleyball’s best players of the modern era. After breaking through in his home city with Rennes Volley 35, the Frenchman has been on an upward trajectory to superstardom. Now, at the age of 30, many regard him as being the sport’s leading libero. With competition for the title, let’s consider the validity of claims labeling Grebennikov as the best libero.

Receiving Plenty of Individual Recognition

While every position on the court is important, few can argue that liberos don’t take on greater responsibility. In charge of managing defensive phases and creating offensive opportunities, it’s not outlandish to say that the role rivals the setter regarding on-court significance. In many ways, this level of accountability is what makes Grebennikov a once-in-a-lifetime player. As per his profile at FIVB, the 30-year-old has 345 career spikes and 300 blocks to his name.

Interestingly, the 30-year-old’s mentality sets him apart from other players. Volleyball World reports that the Frenchman has long embraced a positive approach regarding his attitude and on-court playing style. Because of that, the foundations have been in place to target collective and individual success. In 2014, France finished fourth in the FIVB Volleyball World Championships, and Grebennikov was voted as the best libero of the competition.

Since then, the Rennes-born star has shown his resilience, helping his country clinch two gold medals at the FIVB World League in 2015 and 2017. Not only that, but he’s also performed to a world-class standard at club level. In 2018, Grebennikov played his part in taking Trentino Volley to FIVB Club World Championship success. In the final, Trentino defeated Lube Civitanova 3-1.

Competition for the Title

Nobody can doubt the Frenchman’s talent, but there are other contenders for the best libero crown. On ability, few can argue that Erik Shoji shouldn’t be in the discussion. To date, the 31-year-old American has been central to the United States’ modern-day success in volleyball. Internationally, Shoji has four gold medals to his name, including the sought-after FIVB World Cup. In 2015, the country clinched their second World Cup triumph, beating Italy in the final.

If international success is a determining factor, then it’s impossible to overlook Pawel Zatorski. Despite winning two silvers and a bronze medal at the World Cup between 2011 and 2019, the Polish libero does have two World Championships to his name and one FIVB World League.

However, Grebennikov undoubtedly has the edge regarding domestic achievements, and he could further tighten his grip on the best libero title if Modena Valley can win the Italy Campeonato A1 league. Currently, Andrea Giani’s team are +165 at Space Casino to beat Lube Civitanova in their upcoming SuperLega quarter-final clash.

Undoubtedly One of the World’s Best

Make no mistake about, Grebennikov is a world-class libero whose consistency sets him apart from his competitors. With international and domestic honors to his name, the Frenchman has already cemented his standing as a modern-day great. That said, there’s scope for him to solidify his status as volleyball’s all-time best libero over the coming years.
