France: Montpellier win the big match of Round 12, all easy for leaders Cannes, victory also for Narbonne, Sete, Paris and Cambrai

2 min read

While the match between Tours and Tourcoing was postponed to January due to the European commitments of coach Henno’s team (Champions League), the other 6 matches of the 12th day of Ligue A were played yesterday. In the big match, Montpellier, with setter Javier Gonzalez MVP, defeated Chaumont 3-1, ending the match with a heavy 25:9 in the last set. Great evening from the service line for the home team: 14 aces, 7 from Palacios and only 11 errors, which recorded excellent numbers also in attack (61%) and won the duel also with the block too (7 to 3). This is the eighth victory in a row in the competition for the team of coach Lecat, but the top of the standings is still 3 points away as Cannes (which also has 2 more games played) easily defeated the always reworked Ajaccio 3-0 (also Kolev out) in the spin match (LOOK AT PHOTOGALLERY OF THE MATCH). Narbonne climbs to 4th place and, with 10 ace from Zanotti, overwhelmed Toulouse 3-0, again without Derouillon. The newcomers Cambrai continues to win: 3-2 at Nice with 33 points from Daniel Cagliari (7 aces for the Brazilian opposite) and 15 from central Osoria (6 blocks and 5 aces).
Two tie-breaks close the picture: Nantes, without Michalovic, was defeated at home by Séte without Jaumel, while Paris defeated Poitiers in a 3-2 comeback, thanks to the excellent performances of middle-blocker Luizinho (21 points with 78% in attack and 7 blocks) and the outside-hitter Kujundzic (21 points and 63% in attack).
