2018 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men

Montpellier, France, December 6, 2017. For their first match in the 2018 edition of the CEV Volleyball Cup – Men, France’s MONTPELLIER Volley UC played last year’s semi-finalists United Volleys RHEIN MAIN of Germany. The hosts claimed a hard-fought home victory as they beat their opponent 3-2 (20-25, 25-21, 32-30, 20-25, 15-10).

Both teams played at their best level and offered an impressive fight for the 2,130 supporters in attendance at the Palais des Sports Chaban Delmas in Castelnau le Lez, France. With numerous entertaining rallies, the game changed course a few times. The two teams were neck and neck almost from start to finish and offered a very good show for the public. In fact, all the spikers of the two teams were formidable and scored with their impressive hits and serves. For their first match in the CEV Cup in front of their public, the hosts showed great things – as much as did their opponents from Germany.

Jean Patry, opposite of MONTPELLIER Volley UC and MVP of the game: “We are very happy, this win was very important for the team. Our opponents tonight are very strong and they play very well but our supporters were very important to achieve this victory.”

On December 21, the two teams will meet in Germany for the return match of 16th Finals to determine which side progresses to the next round.
