Attention is focusing on whether Korean Air and Hyundai E&C, which are ranked first in the men’s and women’s divisions of the V-League of professional volleyball, will be able to keep their precarious leading positions.
Korean Air and Hyundai E&C, which are facing the greatest crisis in the leading Mercury, will be put to the test this week side by side.
The two teams took the lead until the 3rd round and seemed to be securing the 1st place in the regular league, but the crisis came in earnest in the 5th round.
Korean Air is on a four-game winning streak. Although they are trying to win three consecutive championships this season with a national team-level lineup, the difference in points between the two teams narrowed to four as they lost in a head-to-head match against second-place Hyundai Capital on the 10th.
On the 14th, Korean Air will challenge KB Insurance, which is in 6th place, to escape from losing streak.
However, the rise of KB Insurance, which has recently won three consecutive wins, is not easy. KB Insurance is aiming to advance to spring volleyball, transforming into a completely different team after the recruitment of Andres Villena, who played an active part in Korean Air in the past.
Korean Air lost to KB Insurance on the 24th of last month with a set score of 0-3, which was also the beginning of a nightmare of four consecutive losses.
If the losing streak cannot be broken in the KB Insurance match, the Woori Card match will become burdensome three days later. Korean Air had a tight confrontation with Woori Card this season, recording 2 wins and 2 losses. 온라인바카라
Hyundai E&C, which almost lost its leading position last week, faces another hurdle this week.
On the 7th, Hyundai E&C, who suffered a shutout (0-3) defeat in the home game against Heungkuk Life Insurance and allowed a tie on points, failed to escape far with a set score of 2-3 in a confrontation with the lowest ranked Pepper Savings Bank on the 10th.
After winning 15 consecutive victories in the opening season, it was in danger of giving up the lead for the first time this season, but fortunately, Heungkuk Life Insurance, who placed second, sighed as it lost without gaining any points against IBK Industrial Bank.
However, Hyundai E&C faced a fierce challenge from Heungkuk Life Insurance, which continues to seek the lead.
The schedule this week is also tough. Hyundai E&C will play against Korea Expressway Corporation on the 14th and KGC Ginseng Corporation on the 17th. Korea Expressway Corporation and KGC Ginseng Corporation are both teams putting their lives on the line for spring volleyball, so it is expected that it will not be an easy match.
Volleyball fans watching the fierce competition for the lead are fun, but the hearts of those who are being chased are bound to burn.
