The scenario was not the most encouraging for the Medley / Campinas before the match. Deprived of the setter Thiago GELINSKI, suspended for too many yellow cards, and Captain Andre Heller, who felt an injury before the clash, the team proved that Campinas has a homogeneous cast. On Monday (21/02), the team of Campinas, defeated the BMG / Montes Claros (MG), for 3 sets to 1 (21/25, 25/22, 25/20 and 25/23) in the gymnasium Tancredo Neves, in Montes Claros (MG). The game was valid for the ninth round of the Superleague Men's 10/11 return.
The result placed the Medley / Campinas in the classification zone for the next round. The Campinas team is in eighth place with 33 points. The BMG / Montes Claros remained in the fourth place with 38 points.
