2 min read

After the avance played on Friday and in which Tours won in four sets on the field of Montpellier, other five matches of 2022/23 Ligue A were played today.
In first, Nantes Rezé won with a score of 1-3 (25:23, 23:25, 21:25, 23:25) on the field of Nice, in a very balanced game. However, the guests were better in key moment, led by an almost unstoppable Chizoba, named MVP of the game and absolute top scorer with 30 points, including 5 aces and one block. With this victory, Nantes celebrated second win in three games and 6 points in the standings, while Nice is still winless, with only one point (PHOTOGALLERY OF THE MATCH).
Great battle in Tourcoing: the hosts defeated Chaumont after a thrilling tie break (25:27, 20:25, 25:22, 30:28, 15:11). Canadian outside hitter Ryley Barnes was named MVP of the match with 21 points including 2 aces and 2 blocks, and 50% in attack, while Brazilian opposite Renan Buiatti scored the same number of points. Pierre Toledo put down 24 points for the losing side.
Clear straight sets win for Poitiers, who easily defeat Toulouse (25:20, 25:20, 25:17) with a great performance in blocking (12 points from this element, against only one for the rivals), and for Cambrai, who defeat Paris with the same result without major problems (25:22, 25:22, 25:20).
Close the picture another straight sets win, the one of newcomers Saint Nazaire over Sète (25:20, 25:18, 25:16). The winners, the only one undefeated team so far, were better in all elements, and this was their third win in as many games, that is worth a first place in the current standings!
Round 3 will be closed on Sunday with the match between Narbonne and Plessis-Robinson.
