VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa finished the first half of the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season as leaders.

 

VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa defeated Cuprum Lubin in an advanced match of Round 12 of the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season to finish 2019 as the leaders in the charts. The team from the Polish capital has played one match more than the vice-leaders and also the champions Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle. Both have 33 points.

Warszawa head coach Andrea Anastasi gave the world champion Piotr Nowakowski a day off but his team didn’t have too many difficulties to surpass rivals today: 3-0 (25-13, 25-22, 25-23). The Frenchman Kévin Tillie top-scored for the winnings side with 9 points. Jakub Ziobrowski delivered 10 points for Cuprum.

Warszawa recorded as many as 12 wins and suffered only one defeat so far. Considering all the turmoil around the club before the start of the season, it must be admitted they finished the first half of the regular season impressively.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
