Currently on a series of five consecutive victories in the league, Narbonne Volley must fight a new battle against a team from the capital, Paris Volley (this Friday, November 19 at 8 p.m.).
Since its defeat against Tours (0-3) in the first reception of the season, Narbonne Volley has been walking on the water and is on a series of five consecutive victories. Last Saturday, the Narbonnais experienced another victorious trip to the Poitiers floor (1-3), to take the place of runner-up to an unbeaten Tours team. In full confidence and now at full speed, the Centurions do not intend to stop there and wish to pass the sixth reception with this reception of Paris Volley (this Friday 8 p.m.).
Lisandro Zanotti will be absent from this meeting against Paris, due to his crack in the right foot. He is already more than uncertain for the first leg of the European Cup against Nicosia on November 30. Once again and after a high-flying performance against Poitiers, the young Aymen Bouguerra should replace him in the post. The Narbonne workforce is complete for this new reception, with the return to the Brazilian group Allan Verissimo.
Hanging the Touraine wagon
At the Arena this Friday evening, Paris Volley will face the Narbonnais with the desire to set the record straight. The players of the capital come out of a heavy defeat at home against the promoted Plessis-Robinson (0-3). A second game lost at home for this team, which made a mixed start to the championship. On the first seven days of the championship, the teammates of libero Benjamin Diez won three matches, only one of which was away from Cambrai (2-3). Currently eighth in Ligue A, the Parisians are in the Aude to face the second. But it is above all a club with a full trophy cabinet that moves to Narbonne (18 times French champion, 4 French cups, 1 Champions League and 1 CEV cup).
Eight points separate the two teams in the standings, and above all a series of victories which is in the hands of Narbonne Volley. In the last confrontations, Paris seems to be doing well for the teammates of captain Ludovic Duée, with three consecutive victories. Paris’ last victory in Narbonne dates back to March 4, 2017. At that time, the Covid did not exist, the Arena was not yet under construction and no current player from both teams was on the field. .
With this battle against Paris, the Centurions start a series of seven matches in just 22 days, including the round trip to the European Cup against Nicosia (November 30 and December 7). It is therefore more than ever time to confirm, and above all to spend as little time as possible on the floor.
