Unicaja ALMERIA claim tenth Spanish Cup crown
News from the National Federations

Caceres, Spain, February 29, 2016. Unicaja ALMERIA claimed the 41st edition of the Spanish national cup after beating CAI TERUEL 3-1 (25-21, 20-25, 25-22, 25-13) in the spectacular tournament held this past weekend in the city of Caceres. The two major forces in Spanish men’s Volleyball met in their sixth Cup final in ten years, and staged one more episode of their rivalry. Ultimately, the offensive efficiency of the current national league titleholders decided the match.

The supremacy in Spanish Volleyball was at stake in Caceres this weekend, as the two adversaries confirmed the predictions by clashing in their 14th final, counting Cup and national league title-deciding matches.  

Unicaja ALMERIA soon took the lead of the encounter following Brazilian ace Marcilio Braga’s successful performance in serve and spike. After a first set which was easily controlled by the team from Almeria (25-21), CAI TERUEL managed to force the equaliser via the offensive contribution by Juan Carlos Barcala (25-20).

With 1-1 in the scoreboard, the two sides engaged in a spectacular showcase of powerful attacks and blocks. Equality persisted throughout the third period but Unicaja ALMERIA used a greater variety in their offensive system to take the lead in the game (25-22).

Anxiety appeared in the ranks of CAI TERUEL, as the defending champions were unable to find ways to score against the inspired rival. Marcilio Braga, who received the award for the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, made the difference and his 23 points paved the way to Unicaja ALMERIA’s tenth Spanish Cup crown.
