PGE Skra Bełchatów swept Asseco Resovia Rzeszów at home in the classic of the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship.


In an advanced match of Round 12, which was the “klasyk“ of the PlusLiga, Skra relatively easy outplayed Resovia: 3-0 (25-19, 25-23, 25-21). These two teams have met 56 times prior to the match today, providing fans unforgettable battles for trophies in the last decade. Skra improved their record to 5-1, while Resovia continued their poor campaign, which consists of only two wins and five defeats. The losing side played the match without two starters, one that has been sidelined for a while (Marcin Możdżonek) and one that missed out his first match in the season (Zbigniew Bartman). Iranian Milad Ebadipour top-scored for Skra with 15 points which were as many points as the Frenchman Nicolas Maréchal put down for Resovia.

One more advanced match has been played tonight but it was valid for Round 13. It was also a big match, in which champions Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle hosted vice-champions Warszawa with both teams entering the match as undefeated (5-0 each). The team from the Polish capital, who from now competes under the new name (VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa, instead of PROJEKT), downed ZAKSA in the tie-break mostly thanks to Bartosz Kwolek (24 points). Aleksander Śliwka made 22 for the losing side.

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
