Game practically without story in the advance of the round 16, played tonight. Nice played a game almost perfect, with very few mistakes, defeating Toulouse in one of the direct clash for playoffs.
In the first set the hosts immediately start very good: they conquer the first advantage already on the 8-3, and then, without too much difficulty, 21-12 in the maximum advantage. 25-17 is the final result, with an excellent team test. The second set is the most balanced of the game: although Nice is always ahead, in the final part of the set the guests manage to equalize the score until 24-24, but despite this, it is Nice to also win the second partial.
After the 10 minute break, Nice is really determinate to close the match. Deev in the field instead of Galabov, and the hosts start with an advantage of 8-0 thanks to an excellent turn in the service of Overbeeke. Coach Kasic makes a turnover: in the field also the second setter Fran in place of Coric, and Anegay middleblocker. In the last points the opposite Malejac also enters, which will also realize the last point, that of 25-15 for Nice.
