Despite being down by two sets, Nantes-Rezé demonstrated extraordinary tenacity to defeat Tours in a gripping match with scores of 19-25, 25-22, 20-25, 25-19, 15-13. This win marks Nantes-Rezé’s eleventh consecutive victory in all competitions, solidifying their top position in the SpikeLigue standings, leading over Chaumont with an 8-0 record.

The star of the match was Brazilian opposite Chizoba Neves who contributed significantly with 21 points.

Tours, buoyed by their recent Champions League victory (3-1 against Rzeszów), initially took the lead, propelled by their strong serve and block, with Dutch middle blocker Michael Parkinson standing out. However, their Brazilian opposite, Aboubacar Drame Neto, paled in comparison to Chizoba, managing only 13 points with a 32% attack efficiency.
