SC "Prometey" — "LKS Lodz"

About "LKS Lodz"

"LKS" is the current champion of Poland. In the entire last draw of the Tauron League, this team suffered only two defeats: the first in the regular stage, but at the same time they won 19 games; the second - in the final series against "Developress", which eventually ended with a score of 3-1.

In the current season, representatives of the city of Lodz are not performing as confidently as in the past. Because in the six starting rounds of the local championship, they have already lost twice. In addition, "LKS" lost in the Super Cup match to "Khemika" (1-3).

The coach of the Poles is the Italian specialist Alessandro Chiappini, who is well known to us for his work with the Hungarian national team. We would like to remind you that this year the national team of Ukraine under the leadership of the current coach of the "red and whites" Ivan Petkov met with the Hungarians three times within the framework of the European Golden League and the European Championship.

It is nice to state that the colors of "LKS Lodz" are defended by the Ukrainian Anastasiia Hryschuk, who has the role of the opposite. Among the legionnaires in the attack, we should also note the 30-year-old Italian opposite Valentina Diouf. The experienced athlete has been competing at the highest level since 2011 and has demonstrated stability on the court so far.

Brazilian outside hitter Amanda Francisco can also cause problems for her rivals in the attack. The lion's share of the club is formed by volleyball players from Poland: Aleksandra Dudek, Kamila Witkowska, Aleksandra Gryka, and others.

Tournament position in Group E 

Currently, it is too early to analyze in detail the standings of Group E. Because the teams have played only one round. Let's just say that "Volero Le Cannet" and "Alba Blaj" have one victory each. Accordingly, SC "Prometey" and "LKS Lodz" are located below these teams.

Ivan Petkov's wards could not oppose the French in the "away" match, although they should have held on to at least one set. At the same time, the Poles within their native walls somewhat unexpectedly conceded to the Romanians. The turning point in this match was the third set, which was won by the players of "Alba Blaj" (29:31). After that, a failure awaited "LKS" in the fourth one (17:25).
