Asseco Resovia returns to the Champions League after a six-year break. Their first opponent will be the French Tours VB team. This will also be a special match for Tory DeFalco. Eloquent words from the presenter about his rivals.
The first round of the Volleyball Champions League is approaching. In addition to Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle and Jastrzębski Węgiel, who met in the last final, Asseco Resovia Rzeszów will also play in this competition. For this club, this will be the first match in the European Cup after a six-year break. It is worth recalling that last season Giampaolo Medea’s team took third place in the PlusLiga, which gave them a chance to play in the Champions League.
Special time for Tory DeFalco
Tory DeFalco commented on the performance in the Champions League on plusliga.pl. For the American host, this will be the first contact with this European Cup, in which he has not yet played.
– This will be my first experience in the Champions League, in which I will make my debut. However, you need to approach each match with the same attitude and preparation, regardless of whether it is PlusLiga or the Champions League. It doesn’t matter to me whether we play the Champions League finalists or Czestochowa. Every meeting is important, and no one should be underestimated, he admitted.
The presenter spoke eloquently about the next opponent: I have no idea
Asseco Resovia’s opponent in the first round of the Champions League will be the French Tours VB. When asked if this would be a special opponent for them, DeFalco was very eloquent. – I have no idea what to expect from this team. For now, I am focused only on the competition with Indikpol Gas Station Olsztyn,” he emphasized.
“Now we will try to quickly reset our heads and rest as much as possible within the framework of this crazy calendar, and then we will think about the French national team,” he concluded.
The match between Asseco Resovia and Tours VB is scheduled for Thursday at 18:00. A live broadcast of this match will be available on television on Polsat Sport and online on the Polsat Box Go platform.
