Rennes retained the first place in the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


After achieving victory against Ajaccio on the road in the ninth round of the 2019/20 Ligue A Masculine by a 3-1 (25-20, 21-25, 28-26, 25-22), Rennes kept the top spot in the charts with 7-2 and 23 points. This was the fifth successive win in the competition for the team coached by Serbian Nikola Matijašević. The Czech Kamil Baránek led Rennes with 20 points today. Axel Truhtchev scored 21 for Ajaccio, while Austrian libero Philipp Kroiss made 79% reception (14 digs, 21% excellent).

Montpellier swept Cannes to stay in the second place with 7-2 and 21 points, while the form of the champions Tours has definitely improved knowing that they wrote down the third success in a row, by beating Paris in straight sets, and came in fourth with 5-4 and 16 points.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
