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

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).
