how about today Looking at the trajectory of the last five matches of the two teams, there is something in common. The point is that everyone had a bloody battle exchanging sets. Heungkuk Life Insurance played a final set match with Korea Expressway Corporation in the process of winning 5 consecutive wins, and also gave a set to two confrontations with Pepper Savings Bank. GS Caltex has recently played two final sets in a three-game losing streak. Two of the three losses were a slugfest, exchanging sets with Hyundai E&C.

Heungkuk Life Insurance is a team where Kim Yeon-kyung’s hard carry stands out. When the team is shaken, it serves as a mental support. It contributes in everything from attack scoring and throwing defense, receiving and connection to blocking.

Without Kim Yeon-kyung, Heungkuk Life’s ranking this season would not have been different from last season. Now, it is accurate to say that Heungkuk Life Insurance has risen to second place thanks to the effect of Kim Yeon-kyung. Thanks to Kim Yeon-kyung, they are enjoying the effect of a full crowd.

Recently, Heungkuk Life Insurance has noticed Joo-ah Lee’s central score. He doesn’t score many blocking goals, but he has a good fast break with setter Kim Da-sol. Today’s game checkpoint.

In GS Caltex, Kang So-hui was unable to play on the court due to a shoulder injury in the last two games. But it is recovering. In the court adaptation training the day before, Kang So-hui tried to attack. Whether or not he will participate in today’s game will be determined on the field, but there are positive aspects. However, the shoulder injury is a very sensitive part, so we have to keep an eye on the situation until the end.

GS Caltex has a team color that crushes opponents with force. This trend came out in the last round 2 match. In order to gain strength even in blocking and serving inferiority, it is necessary to harmonize the triangle formation, not the monopoly of Moma.

In addition, the middle blocker line, which is helping Han Su-ji, Moon Ji-yoon, Oh Se-yeon, and Kwon Min-ji, must gain strength.

The game starts at 7pm. It is a three-round match between two teams who exchanged wins and losses. It is more anticipated because it is a confrontation between two teams that do not collapse easily. It is a match not to be missed.
