ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle actually sent Jastrzębski Węgiel 3: 0 (25:18, 25:22, 25:20) and stood at the top of the PlusLiga table. The return to Kędzierzyn-Koźle Ferdinando De Giorgi and Dawid Konarski, who led Zaksa to gold medals in 2016 and 2017, failed.

So far, the Opole team, with a set of points per meter, faced Jastrzębski Węgiel on Wednesday night, who lost only once with Stocznia Szczecin. "The duel with this rival will show us where we are," said coach JW Ferdinando De Giorgi before the arrival of the "old garbage", which recently won the Polish Championship twice with Kędzierzyn. Today he has a triumph in the new club colors and, above all, to break the fatal run of Jastrzębia in competition with the Kędzierzyń team. The last Orange defeated them in January 2015, then lost in the league by no more than eight times in a row.
This time, they failed to break Kędzierzyn's niefartu, and moreover, throughout the game, only fragments managed to get close to the level presented by their rivals. And if this clash is to show where the Jastrzębski Węg team is, then coach De Giorgi will probably have a headache …
In the first batch, the hawks wanted more than to fight with Zaks as equal and equal. The most disturbing was the nervous and inaccurate play, especially in receiving the service and the weak efficacy of the attack by Dawid Konarski and Julien Lyneel. The hosts, however well guided by Benjamin Toniutti, made some mistakes.
The second edition was more uniform, abundant in long shifts, beautiful defense and technical play. The teams scored a lot of time but when ZAKSA twice defeated Konarski's defeat (his team had only 34% of the attack's effectiveness in this part of the match), it reached 21:19 and the locals did not have it more recently.
The third set was initially aligned. Then the mining team jumped three holes, but when Sam Deroo was in the field, there was no trace after the advance payments. A series of five consecutive points allowed volleyball players to go on the lead and play calm at the end of the match, in which they confirmed their enormous power. A 3: 0 victory earned them a leading position.
