In the middle of the season, the top tier lost strength and the bottom tier performed well.

Surprises are occurring one after another in the men’s professional volleyball division. Teams with lower rankings are winning one after another against teams at the top of the rankings.

The professional volleyball ‘Dodram 2023-2024 V-League‘, which has completed 3 rounds out of 6 rounds, has been playing a 4-round schedule since the end of last year. In the fourth round, there has been a series of unexpected results in the men's division.

In the first game of the fourth round on December 27 last year, marking the start of the second half, leader Woori Card defeated last place KB Insurance as expected.

However, the bottom team defeated the top team as Hyundai Capital won the Hyundai Capital-Korea Electric Power Company match on December 28th and OK Financial Group won the OK Financial Group-Korean Air match on the 29th.

On December 30, Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance seemed to calm the rebellion of lower-ranked teams by catching last-place KB Insurance, but on the 31st, the last day of 2023, Hyundai Capital broke expectations by defeating leader Woori Card.

In the new year, the rebellion of lower-ranked teams began in earnest. In the 9 men's games played until the 11th, the bottom team beat the top team in all games except one (KB Insurance-Hyundai Capital on January 4th).

On the 1st, Korea Electric Power Corporation acquired Korean Air, on the 2nd, OK Financial Group acquired Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, on the 5th, Korean Air acquired Woori Card, on the 6th, OK Financial Group acquired Korea Electric Power Corporation, on the 7th, Hyundai Capital acquired Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, and on the 9th. KB Insurance defeated Korean Air, OK Financial Group defeated Woori Card on the 10th, and Korea Electric Power Corporation defeated Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance on the 11th.

The reason why surprises like this keep happening is because the situation for each team is changing as the season approaches midway.

1st place Woori Card and 2nd place Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which were highly dependent on foreign main guns Matej Kok and Yosvani Hernández, respectively, appear not to be as powerful as they were in the early part of the season due to the decline in stamina of the two players. 3rd place Korean Air, which was aiming to win the first 4 consecutive wins in history, is also showing an uneven performance as it cannot completely fill the gap of foreign main gun Lincoln Williams.

On the other hand, 4th place OK Financial Group, 5th place Korea Electric Power Corporation, and 6th place Hyundai Capital, which were in a slump after experiencing consecutive losses during the season, are changing their mood and showing even better performance. KB Insurance, ranked 7th and the lowest, also shows fighting spirit and sometimes produces unexpected results.

With close matches taking place every day, men's volleyball fans are expected to be able to watch an exciting game where it is difficult to predict the winner or loser. 스포츠토토맨
