A new challenge awaits the Amiens elite eagles. Amiens Métropole Volley-Ball will travel to Marseille tomorrow for another day of the elite championship, in order to confirm their current good momentum after the 2 3-point victories against Épinal and Harnes.
Going for another 3-point victory is very important for the AMVB, it could allow the Picard club to get closer to the top places in the standings. Captain Mehdi Hashemi and his team will have to approach the match with as much seriousness, rigor and aggressiveness as during their last two meetings. “It’s important, we have to remain calm and confident for our next matches like that of Conflans next week at the Coliseum. » explains coach Ali Nouaour.
During the first leg which took place last October, the latter had lined up a different major 6, in order to give playing time to his entire squad. Marseille, although they haven’t recorded a win since the start of the season, are a much more formidable opponent at home, with the presence of players not taking part in away matches. “At home they took a set in Harnes and Caudry, they fight on all the balls and chamber a lot. We have to make our match, they will play their last asset. Even if for the moment Amiens is in play down, Marseille needs points to hope for a maintenance in elite. And we need points to hope to have a chance to get the playoffs. » specifies the Picard coach.
Let’s hope that the AMVB, despite this long trip to the capital of Provence, manages to maintain the pace and come back with 3 new points in the standings. “We are working well in training, we are doing everything possible to meet the demands and needs of the players, now we have to continue to perform” concluded coach Ali Nouaour.
