Thursday’s game in Friedrichshafen was dictated by the visiting team from the very beginning. The hosts have only just returned to the game after the break forced by the coronavirus infections in the team and it was obvious that they are not in the best shape. The first set lasted only 20 minutes, and it was finished by the well-disposed Łukasz Wiśniewski, who set the score at 25:15.
Jastrzębski Węgiel’s tenth consecutive victory. Great game in Friedrichshafen
The course of the second batch was very similar to the first. From the very beginning, the players of Jastrzębski Węgiel had a decisive advantage. At one point they were leading by 10: 4, but then the hosts began to slowly catch up and reduced it to even three points. However, Andrea Gardini’s players did not allow more and the set ended with the result 25:17.
The beginning of the third set was even worse for the hosts. The Jastrzębie team started it with a 7-0 lead and only then they allowed the hosts to score the first point. This game was by far the most one-sided, although also this time the players of Friedrichshafen managed to collect at least 15 points. In the end, Wojciech Szwed ended this difficult fight for the hosts with a block-out attack. Trevor Clevenot (11 points) ended the game with the best score in the visiting team.
For Jastrzębski Węgiel it was the third consecutive win in the Champions League without losing a set. Earlier, Gardini’s players dealt with Chebyr Pazardzhik and Knack Roeselare without any problems. At the same time, it was also the tenth game in a row for them without losing a set in all competitions. The team Friedrichshafen lost the previous two meetings after tie-breaks.
