Greenyard is the current champion and leader of the Belgian league. But in the first game of the Champions League, the Belgian team lost to the Berlin Recycling Volleys 1:3. For the Belgium fans, the arrival of PGE Skra is a great event, because the Polish team with the world champions in the squad, is the favorite of the game. But this is sport, so it's very hard to judge anything.
PGE Skra players went to Belgium on Monday. Only David Fiel Rodriguez did not board the plane to Belgium, but the good news is that Karol Kłos can play against Greenyard. Let us remind that during the match against Cerrad Czarni Radom, the middle-blocker PGE Skra suffered ankle injury. "Fortunately, stabilizers saved me, so it was not bad" - says Kłos, who returned to training last Friday.
Let's recall the history of PGE Skra matches against the Maaseik team, because it is very interesting. In official games the teams met in the CEV Champions League in the 2005/2006 season. In the 1/12 finals, PGE Skra eliminated the Belgian team after two wins (3:1 and 3:2). Another interesting fact is that two years ago, during the Giganci Siatkówki tournament, PGE Skra defeated the Belgian team 3:2 after an amazing tie-break won 29:27.
Jolan Cox, the opposite of Greenyard, remembers the match from last season against another Polish team, ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The Belgian team won 3:2 and now wants to win another team from Poland. "It was an amazing meeting with many defenses... Now we have to face another Polish team" - says Belgian. "We have a weak start to the CEV Champions League, because we lost to Berlin, which puts us in a difficult situation. The rules of the Champions League have changed slightly, so now we need a victory to get a promotion to the next round.
The game starts at 20.30. Broadcast in Canal+ Sport.
