Hyundai Capital is on the verge of becoming the leader in men’s professional volleyball this season.
Hyundai Capital scored a set score of 3-1 (25-19 25-21 26-25-19 25-21 26- 24 25-18).
As a result, second place Hyundai Capital, which recently won three consecutive wins, recorded 19 wins and 10 losses and 58 points, and caught up with the league leader Korean Air (20 wins, 9 losses, and 59 points), which was caught by Woori Card the day before, by one point.
If Hyundai Capital wins the home game against Woori Card on the 21st, it will surpass Korean Air and rise to the top for the first time this season.
On this day, Hyundai Capital’s Heo Soo-bong and Oreol led the attack with high-altitude strikes at every turning point.

In particular, in the first set alone, he scored 8 points and had an attack success rate of 80%, leading the atmosphere in the beginning.
Oreol also achieved the triple crown with 23 points, 3 back attacks, 4 blocking, and 4 servings. It is the 4th time that Oreol has recorded the Triple Crown, and it has been almost 7 years since the 3rd round of the championship match with OK Savings Bank (now OK Financial Group) on March 22, 2016.
On the other hand, KB Insurance struggled with foreign player Viyena with 29 points, but it fell short of Hyundai Capital in terms of firepower. KB Insurance, which only had 11 wins, 18 losses and 32 points due to the defeat on this day, continued to stay in 6th place. 스포츠토토
