PGE Skra Bełchatów prevailed in the Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship classic against titleholders Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle, valid for Round 19 of the 2019/20 regular season.

 

The PlusLiga classic in Bełchatów attracted nearly 3,000 spectators at the Hala Energia with tickets being sold out two weeks ago! The match had everything the fans expected - spectacular actions, twists and turns, and ultimately five sets that came after Skra’s lead of 2-0. These two sides met 52 times in PlusLiga prior to today’s encounter.

The Bełchatów team won 29 times and ZAKSA 23 times. Skra couldn’t count on a starting outside hitter Artur Szalpuk. On the other hand, ZAKSA finally had Piotr Łukasik and Łukasz Kaczmarek at the disposal. With 19 points (88.2% attack, 15/17), Jakub Kochanowski led six players of Skra with double digits in scoring. Karol Kłos made 5 kill blocks. Aleksander Śliwka put down 24 points for the losing side.

The result of the classic didn’t cause a reshuffle in the standings. Because of a surprising defeat yesterday, VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa didn’t manage to further isolate at the top, ZAKSA are second, Skra are third. However, due to a shocking loss of the fourth-placed Jastrzębski Węgiel against Aluron Virtu CMC Zawiercie (3-2), the gap between the top three teams and the rest of the league has increased.

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
