France: no upsets in last games of Round 8 – three points for Chaumont, Tours and Montpellier

2 min read

Round 8 of 2022/23 Ligue A come into a end today with last three games, all won by favorites (at least, on paper).
All clashes ended in straight sets: Chaumont down Poitiers (25:21, 25:23, 25:18), despite 20 points of Gabriel Da Silva (and 67% in attack) on the losing side, but the hosts very absolutely better, in all elements. With this victory, the players around italian expert Silvano Prandi confirm themselves to the top, with 22 points, two more than Tours, who celebrated a straight sets home victory over Paris. This game was more balanced, 25:23, 26:24, 25:21), but the hosts were better in attack in decisive moments of the game.
Interesting also the match between defending champions Montpellier and Toulouse, 3-0 (25:22, 25:22, 25:23) too, with titleholders who confirmed their winning streak after the Supercup, but a disastrous start in the league. Decisive the 13 winning blocks (6 by Brazilian middle blocker Renan Michelucci). With this result, Montpellier share third place together with Nantes and Tourcoing, and all three have 15 points.
