Title contenders Paris Volley suffered a shocking defeat to the ninth-placed Nice Volley Ball in Round 17 of the 2017/18 French men’s volleyball championship Ligue A.

 

Thanks to great serving display (11 aces by a team), the underdogs Nice stunned Ligue A title favorites Paris at home by beating them in four sets, partially 25-22, 14-25, 25-16, 26-24. The Ukrainian opposite Vasyl Tupchii highlighted the winners, who remained out of the playoff zone, with 21 points (4 aces), while the Dutch Wouter ter Maat delivered 22 points for Paris. The team from the French capital committed as much as 13 errors more than the rivals (37-24).

The reigning champions Chaumont Volley-Ball 52 Haute-Marne barely avoided the fate of Paris as they came back from 1-2 in sets against the second-to-last Rennes Volley. Stéphen Boyer topped Chaumont with 20 points, while Canadian Daniel Jansen Vandoorn made 71% attack (5/7, 6 points). The Czech veteran outside hitter Kamil Baránek scored 25 points for Rennes.

WCH 2018 W: The MVP award goes to Tijana Boskovic!

I thought the same based on performance in the final match, but then I check the official stats for setters, and Malinov is #1 while Ognjenovic is #6, https://japan2018.fivb.com/en/competition/statistics

However, it is completely ridiculous that Serbia beat Italy twice in World Championship and still 4 players from Italy (2nd place) are in dream team, 2 from China (3rd place) and only 1 from Serbia (1st place) Reply

What about maja, I think she deserved it more than the other setter, malinov was taken out of the games several times it doesn't make sense. Reply

How to qualify for the Olympic Games 2020 volleyball tournament? One place already guaranteed!

In Women's competition Netherlands (6) will face Italy (7), Mexico (18) and Azerbaijan (19). Very strange to see the numbers 2 and 4 of the WCH in the same poule. Reply
