Coupe de France: road to semifinals! Tours defeat Montpellier in big match, Chaumont defeat St. Nazaire also at tie break. Sete and Plessis Robinson ok.

2 min read

Quarterfinals of Coupe de France (but I prefer call it Marathon!) were played today, on Monday evening.
In first match played, away victory for Sète, who needed only three sets to defeat CEV Challenge Cup winners Narbonne, in a match with very low numbers in attack, 32% vs. 43%.
In semifinal, the winners will face regular season leaders Tours who, in big match of quarterfinals, defeated Montpellier with the same result. The return to the field of Palacios and the debut of Basic (5 points) were not enough.
On the other hand, setter Coric played a great match with all his spikers: 68% for Tillie, 62% for Palonsky and 56% for Derouillon (today on the field in place of Goiano).
Almost a very big upset for Saint Nazaire, the only Ligue B side remained in the competition and which, surprisingly, defeated Nice in Round of 16.
Led by a super Kovalov (28 points, 63% in attack and 52% efficiency), they take a 2-1 lead against a super super super favorite Chaumont, and even 8-4 in fourth set and 9-8 in decisive fifth. Prandi’s side, though, who fielded all four Cubans, who scored 71 points on 82 of Chaumont, managed to take a comeback and to claim the ticket for semifinal, in which they will face at home Plessis Robinson, who defeated Poitiers on the road in only three sets with odd numbers: only 20 winning attacks and 30%, but also 18 winning blocks that, together with 25 errors from the service line of the hosts, made the difference.
