CEV Cup: Tours eliminate Modena and go to quarterfinals! Monza qualified too.

2 min read

A week ago, Tours VB showed a great performance to win over super favorite Perkinelmer Leo Shoes Modena in the first leg of the 1/8 finals of the 2022 CEV Volleyball Cup. And this wasn’t a coincidence at all.
In the rematch, French side took two sets against Modena on Italian soil, which was enough to see themselves qualified to the quarter-finals given they won 3-1 in the first leg. And they did it despite the ankle injury of setter Coric, on 18-15 of first set. Thus, the “Dream Team” from SuperLega got eliminated from two competitions in just three days, Italian Cup and CEV Cup.
The third set which brought Tours an advancement to Top-8 was quite a memorable one, lasting 41 minutes. And the Ligue A side took it by converting the 10th set ball!
Yes, Modena managed to win the match 3-2, but in vain.
Kévin Tillie led Tours today with 18 points in three sets after which he sat on the bench while the winners were top-scored by the Dutchman Nimir Abdel-Aziz, author of 24 points.
