2 min read

Round 5 of 2022/23 Ligue A ended today with last four games.

In first match in program, Tours needed only three sets to prevail on the field of Narbonne (21:25, 18:25, 22:25) who, in addition to the second heavy defeat in a row (a week ago they succumbed on the field of Chaumont in four sets), lose also starting outside hitter Jordi Ramon who left the court already in first set due an injury. MVP of the match Aboubacar Drame Neto, who ended the game as top scorer on the winning side with 17 points, all in attack, and an almost perfect 71%. Willner Rivas scored 18 points for Narbonne (1 ace and 59% in attack).

Away win also for Nantes, who defeat Poitiers at tie break (28:30, 25:20, 20:25, 25:19, 10:15). It was a battle between the two opposite: Gabriel Da Silva scored 32 points on the home side (2 winning blocks, 1 ace and 56% in attack) and ended the game as top scorer, while Chizoba Neves Atu put down 26 points (1 ace and 53% in attack) on the winning side.

Good news for titleholders Montpellier who, after a terrible start, celebrated their second win in a row (after the one on the field of Nice a week ago) and now boast 6 points in the standings. Today they defeated Plessis-Robinson in straight sets (25:20, 28:26, 25:22), and this was first seasonal win for defending champions.

Close the picture an amazing duel between Cambrai and Chaumont. The game ended by 1-3 (23:25, 41:43, 25:18, 14:25) in favor of the visitors, but look at the score of second set! The hosts were better in blocking (13 to 5), and opposite Hermans Egleskalns ended the game with 24 points (2 aces and 51% in attack) and absolute top scorer of the match, but the new leaders in the standings (13 points, followed by Tourcoing, Saint Nazaire and Tours with 11) were better in attack (55% vs. 48%) and from the service line (7 vs. 3). Patrick Indra, who started from the bench, was the most prolific player on the winning side with 16 points (2 winning blocks and 67% in attack).
