The professional volleyball V-League entered the third round on the 10th. In the 2022-2023 season, the change in the setter team, which can be said to be the center of each team, is exceptionally large, so it is no exaggeration to say that the full-fledged ranking fight starts from the 3rd round. With Hyundai E&C and Korean Air marching high to first place in the women’s and men’s divisions, the battle for rankings is expected to intensify from the third round.
As of the 12th, the first place in the women’s division is Hyundai E&C. Hyundai E&C has been on a winning streak since the season opener on October 22 without losing a single match. If they win the game against GS Caltex in Suwon on the 15th, they will win 13 consecutive wins, surpassing the 12 consecutive wins they set up last season. Hyundai E&C faced GS Caltex in the last game of the second round on the 8th. At the time, Hyundai E&C won thanks to the performance of Yasmin Bedart, who recorded a 47.83% attack share in the 5th set after a full set battle.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, second in the women’s division, is also closely chasing Hyundai E&C with a recent three-game 스포츠토토 winning streak. Although he played one more game, Heungkuk Life Insurance is attached to Hyundai E&C by two points. Heungkuk Life Insurance invites Korea Expressway Corporation home on the 13th to challenge the No. 1 position. If Heungkuk Life Insurance wins with a set score of 3-0 or 3-1, it will surpass Hyundai E&C and rise to the top for the first time this season, even if it is for a while. In the confrontation on the 22nd of last month, Heungkuk Life Insurance won 3-1. Kim Da-eun, who scored 16 points, including 1 blocking and 2 sub-aces, stood out. Attention is focusing on whether Heungkuk Life Insurance, which boasts the league’s No. 1 offensive power, will break through the mighty wall of the road construction that has recently been on the rise.
In the men’s division, the difference between Korean Air in first place and Hyundai Capital in second place is four points. Hyundai Capital has recently won 5 consecutive wins and is showing off its best performance. On the 18th, the match between the two teams will be held in Cheonan. In the last two rounds, Korean Air won a complete victory with an advantage in attack, blocking, and serve. Lim Dong-hyuk perfectly filled the gap of Lincoln Williams, who was absent due to Corona 19, with 21 points. It seems that the game will be divided depending on how much the ‘Triangle Formation’ of Oreol Kameho, Jeon Kwang-in, and Heo Soo-bong, who only scored 3, 5, and 12 points in the previous confrontation, will survive against Korean Air.
