PGE Skra Bełchatów has not yet faced all the health problems, although thanks to the fact that he did not play in the finals of the Polish Cup, he had more time to train and bring the team to order when it comes to form.
The last time for residents of Bełchatów was not very good, mainly due to injuries. Defeats in PlusLiga and a severe defeat at Maaseik, where the Belgians established very difficult conditions, made us nervous.
PGE Skra was looking forward to the rematch, especially in front of their own public, but coach Roberto Piazza still did not have all the volleyball players available except that the composition was still David Fiel.

The start of the meeting exposed all host issues. Renee Teppan's half-grid attack was a perfect summary of the team's weaknesses. The party was also unfavorable, the play of Jolana Cox caused huge problems to the residents of Bełchatów and Greenyard Maaseik began to leave.
When only the center worked well, and Grzegorz Łomacz could not always use it, the Belgians were looking for the first batch. It seems that after the change of sides, little has changed. Greenyard Maaseik quickly jumped as Jelte Maan played scoring, the advantage of the guests increased to five points. It was difficult to think of catching up, if PGE Skra has not yet issued relevant departments.
It was enough, however, to start the service, play more with the middle and after the sprint in the grid of Jakub Kochanowski, the hosts tied. From now on, the game went from point to point and there was an advantage. Two hosts were wasting their time, spoiling the service, so rivals. At 02:27, Milad Ebadipour acted and everything started from the beginning.

Piotr Orczyk was well disposed on the field, exchanging Artur Szalpuk, who after the injury has not yet reached the form. The charges of Joel Banks were wrong in power, helping the opponents in the same way. Bełchatowianie quietly reached the set, leading the way throughout the meeting.
The Belgians, however, did not suspend their weapons, were not distracted for a moment, but also failed to build an advantage. The residents of Bełchatów did not follow the blow, making two mistakes at the end, which led to a tie-break. In this part of the meeting, Maaseik's volleyball players proved to be better, again defeating the Polish champions.
