2 min read

Waiting for the next midweek round scheduled on Tuesday 26 October, 5 of the 7 matches valid for Round 3 of French Ligue A have already been played this evening.
In the big match between two of the main title contenders, Montpellier, led by MVP Javier Gonzalez, defeated Tourcoing at the tie-break, despite Loser’s great performance (19 points, 68% in attack 1 block and 3 aces). On the other hand, another subdued game of Vaccari, and Lyneel is not yet at his best (this time in the starting six, but with only 13 balls attached). Among the guests, a good Palacios with 18 points, 58% in attack and 54% efficiency and 3 blocks.
As for the other matches, another defeat for the defending champions Cannes, despite the debut of the opposite Nelli, after the physical problems at the beginning of the season, but don’t shine (6/15 in attack and 2 errors). 1-3 at home against Narbonne is the final result, after having touched the possibility of taking some points at 21:19 and 24:23 of the 2nd set.
Even worse for Poitiers, the only team with 0 points after three matches, after today’s 1-3 home defeat against Nantes. The Argentine Lopez is the top scorer for the guests.
Third Victory instead for Tours (this time is Toledo to enter the field in place of Derouillon), that however had to struggle a lot to defeat Nice at the tie-break. Excellent performance of the middle-blocker Teryomenko, author of 19 points with 84% in attack (0 errors and 0 blocked).
Tie-break also in Séte, where the hosts won against Toulouse despite Daniel Cagliari’s 32 points.
