Weekend of recovery matches in French Ligue A. In the big match, Chaumont (with 56 points for the trio of the Cuban national team) won 3-1 on the field of Tours aggravating the crisis of the team coached by Henno, which reached their fourth consecutive defeat.
In the other high-ranking match, bad day for Cambrai, and Narbonne took advantage of it by clearly winning 3-1 with Uriarte MVP and Hirsch back incisive in the realization phase after the decline accused in recent matches (21 points and 61% in attack, including 2 aces).
At the bottom of the charts, Ajaccio’s chances of salvation are rekindled and, despite Andric’s 35 points, they won the direct match 3-2 against Nice thanks also to the excellent performance of the opposite Romero (preferred to the newcomer Overbeeke). The locals still regret having wasted an advantage of 22:19 and 4 match points in the 4th set (which had been officially closed, but the referee decided to extend the match), while in the 5th set it was Nice to nullify an advantage of 7:10.
