It is in the Pink City that the Chaumont VB 52 Haute-Marne will try to go for a sixth victory this season, this Friday 12 November (8 p.m.). Faced with one of the teams in form in recent weeks, the Cévébistes once again pass an interesting test in Toulouse.
The Chaumont VB 52 Haute-Marne is once again a distant journey this Friday 12 November. After his stretched victory in Nice (2-3) last week, the Cévébistes would see themselves coming back from Haute-Garonne with a new success in their pockets. But the task does not look easy, facing an opponent who remains on three consecutive victories and therefore displays a good dynamic.
“The Toulouse residents have really strengthened their collective this year, explains CVB 52 assistant coach Antonello Andriani. If they kept a solid defensive base with almost two professional liberators, the Argentinian Santucci and the Dutchman Gijs Jorna, they have, on the other hand, well stocked their offensive sector, with the duo Joaquim Panou / Daniel Cagliari. “
The latter, who arrived from Cambrai this summer, was indeed named the best striker in Ligue A for the season, “And after a start to the season where he took his bearings, he has regained tremendous efficiency”, warns the Haut-Marne coach Silvano Prandi. An essential element in the beautiful series recently carried out by the Haut-Garonnais.
In time, over the last three days, if the Chaumontais still show an honorable record, their pace was however less flamboyant, with the same defeat and two victories in the “tie-break”. “I don’t think the team is experiencing a drop in speed,” says Antonello Andriani.
Above all, I believe that this championship is particularly homogeneous. Not to mention our last matches in five sets, if we analyze our defeat at Cambrai for example, we realize that we have lost our three sets of two points. It played out for nothing. With a little more success, we could even have taken three points. “
CVB remains competitive
For the assistant coach, the cévébiste team, on the contrary, continues its collective progression. “The players like it. Everyone gives their all. We have built a very interesting squad, with a lot of young people, but well supervised by a few experienced teammates who know how to manage the team’s strong and weak times perfectly during a match. There is an understanding and mutual aid between them which is very beneficial in the performance. “
This does not guarantee victory for sure, but allows this group to store a certain dose of confidence. “This is perhaps what makes the difference with a team like Nice,” continues the technician. The latter seems really competitive to me, but it lacks the confidence that it could not accumulate by multiplying the defeats at the start of the season. “
Antonello Andriani still insists on the beauty of the Cévébistes after their only setback at Cambrai so far, a symbol of the serenity that reigns in the group. “The boys didn’t procrastinate. He immediately took the next step, to win against Montpellier. “
This Friday, in Toulouse, the CVB 52 will have to fight again to try not to come back empty-handed, facing an opponent who is discovering new ambitions this season. An opposition that risks blushing a few hands in the Pink City.
