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.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
