A collision between players, which is rare in a volleyball game, occurred. Violence occurred in rival matches.
This happened during a regular league match in the 2022-23 season of the Brazilian Super League men’s division. On the 5th (Korean time), an act of violence came out in the confrontation between Minas and Sada Cruzeiro. Outside hitter Miguel Lopez, who plays for Sada Cruzeiro, got into an argument with Minas players over the net during the fourth set.
In the process, Lopez hit Minas’ apposite Paulo Vinicio Silva’s right face with his left hand. The match was stopped and the referee issued both a yellow and a red card to López.
Lopez left the court as he was immediately ejected. On this day, Minas won a come-from-behind victory over Sada Cruzeiro with a set score of 3-1 (23-25 25-20 25-18 25-16). There are 12 teams participating in the Brazilian league, and Sada Cruzeiro and Minas are considered rival teams representing the league.
Sada Cruzeiro was caught by Minas that day, but kept the league lead with 13 wins and 3 losses (40 points). Minas rose to 3rd place with 10 wins and 6 losses (31 points) with the victory that day.
Paulo, who suffered from López’s misfortune, made up for the vacancy of Apogit Wallas Souza, who missed the day after being disciplined by the Brazilian Olympic Committee. Paulo, along with Enrique Onohato, led the team’s offense, posting 17 points each. 메이저놀이터
