France: 0 points for Tours, Montpellier and Chaumont!Paris and Plessis Robinson ok. A new player for Cannes

2 min read

What a Saturday night in French Ligue A!
After 11 consecutive victories, leaders (and so far unbeaten) Tours collapses 3-0 on the field of Sète in the last match of the season by Baranek (who will move to Novi Sad). The hosts recovered their starters Chirivino and Geiler in the sextet and knock out their opponents thanks above all to Karlitzek (19 points, 65% in attack with 0 errors and only 1 blocked, 8 aces with only 5 errors!), Sclater (12 points, 56% in attack, 2 blocks and 1 ace) and MVP Kreek (8 points, 83% in attack, 1 block and 2 aces).
Another top team to unexpectedly collapse is Montpellier, overwhelmed 3-0 by the remodeled Toulouse. Daniel Cagliari is in fact on the bench with second Libero’s jersey, but Panou (this evening opposite instead of outside-hitter) makes 24
points with 72% in attack, thus resulting basically unstoppable for opponents (again without Faure).
Confirm the negative moment also
Chaumont who, after elimination
from the CEV Cup against the Romanians of Galati, loses against Narbonne on their home soil. The guests succeed indeed
to win 3-1 despite heavy absences
by Rafael Araujo and Zanotti, thanks to the good performance of the setter Uriarte who manages to take advantage from his middle-blockers: Ramos is MVP with 14 points with 73% in attack, 2 blocks and 1 ace while Zerba, who starts from the bench, closes with 10 points, 4 of which in blocking.
Cannes remains last in the standings, with Nelli back in the sextet and author of 13 points with 45% in attack, 2 blocks and 1 ace, defeated 3-0 on the field of newcomers Plessis Robinson in a match that was essential to get out of the relegation zone.
The only good new is the new face for coach Dileo’s side: Cveticanin, middle-blocker of the Portuguese national team, arrived to make up for Georgiev’s absence.
The picture closes with the 3-1 of Paris over the disappointing Tourcoing, which fails to
achieve satisfactory results this season. The formation of Mauricio Paes wastes propitious opportunities in the first 2 sets, but eventually surrenders in the 4th set.
