Tours is the first team to secure a place in the 2018/19 French Men’s Volleyball Championship finals.

 

The reigning champions and regular season winners Tours dominated over the No.5 seed Nice in Game 2 of the 2018/19 Ligue A Masculine playoff semifinals (3-0: 25-23, 25-16, 25- 17) to close the series at 2-0 and advance to the finals. The elimination of Nice, the club with the smallest budget in the league, from the playoffs brings an era of their head coach Mladen Kašić to an end. The Croatian expert was at the helm of Nice for 19 years. Next season, he will coach Sète.

Cameroonian Nathan Wounembaina top-scored for Tours with 14 points, making 77% positive reception (13 digs, 1 error, 46% excellent).

In the finals, Tours will face the winners of the match-up between the second seed Ajaccio and No.6 seed Chaumont. Ajaccio tied the semifinal series at 1-1 with a 3-1 victory in Game 2.

Timothée Carle notched 22 points (4 aces) for the winning side. Canadian Brett Dailey set up 6 kill blocks, while Jean-François Exiga made 89% positive reception (19 digs, 21% excellent).

2018/19 Ligue A Masculine playoff semifinals – Game 2:

(2) Ajaccio – (6) Chaumont 3-1 (25-16, 25-17, 20-25, 25-20), series 1-1

(1) Tours – (5) Nice 3-0 (25-23, 25-16, 25- 17), series 2-0

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
