Poland: ZAKSA sweep a Jastrzębski without 7 players for second time in 4 days in big match of last Round! Gdańsk – Olstzyn 3-0

2 min read

Round 26 of 2021/22 Plusliga, the last one, has been completed today with two matches.

Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle took advantage of numerous problems (and absences) of club champions Jastrzębski Węgiel to sweep fierce rivals in straight sets for the second time in just 4 days.
In the big match, which was supposed to bring the winner a step closer to the regular-season triumph, ZAKSA took over the lead in the standings. However, their rivals were decimated by the cold and injuries so their head coach Andrea Gardini was forced to send backups, with the exception of Stéphen Boyer, on the court from the start of the match. Jastrzębski’s problems were especially evident in the middle blocker position given that a youth team member Jakub Styrnol was called to play this match.
Either way, 7 of their players weren’t employed today: Dryja, Gladyr, and Clévenot (injuries and virus), Fornal and Popiwczak (virus), Toniutti and Hadrava (coach’s decision).

Recall that these two sides faced also 4 days ago in the first leg of the CEV Champions League semis and the former also prevailed in straight sets.
On Thursday, Jastrzębski must win 3-0 or 3-1 in the rematch to avoid elimination prior to the Golden Set. And the fight between these two for the top spot in the PlusLiga regular season isn’t over yet as both have to play one more match, both against Trefl Gdańsk, who today beat Indykpol AZS Olsztyn (already mathematically at sixth place) and came to a win from taking the last vacant slot, the eighth place, for the playoffs, with 2 more matches to play. Now they are at -3 points from playoff zone, and the guys around coach Winiarski will try to reach it with two recovery matches against the same Jastrzebski (April 9) and ZAKSA (April 11).
