France: Côte d’Azur derby to Cannes! Plessis Robinson stun Montpellier, Poitiers steal a point from Chaumont

2 min read

Ligue A Round 22 was completed on Saturday again without any postponement.
A decimated Montpellier, still without Lynell but today also without middle-blocker Le Goff and outside-hitter Palacios in an absence that forced coach Lecat
to put in the field opposite Faure in his role, of course with lot of problems in reception, has been defeated in only three sets by a Plessis Robinson who managed to take advantage from the situation.
Great day for Hugo De Leon Guimaraes who ended the game with 17 points, 76% (0 errors and 0 blocked!), 2 blocks and 2 aces, although the other outside-hitter Suihkonen was awarded MVP (15 points, 3 winning blocks and 53% in attack).

In the queue points for both Cannes
and Poitiers.
Coach Matijasevic’s side defeats a very intense Côte d’Azur derby against Nice, with a great comeback from 1-2 and after third set lost 11-25. MVP of the match Ronald Jimenez, absolute top scorer of the match 28 points, 1 ace, 1 block and 52% in attack.

Tie break also for a Poitiers who, after a 2-1 lead against super favorite Chaumont, wasted the advantage. Decisive for Coach Prandi’s side the entry of Gutierrez (MVP of the match with 10 points, 1 ace and 50% in attack) in place of Mergarejo and Alonso in place of Gueye.
About the current standings, Poitiers boasts now +2 to Cannes.
