Polish team goes to TTCLM quarter-final after 3:2 away win against Hennebont. Two more TTCLM matches were ended: Werder Bremen – Eslovs 3:2, Borussia – Chartres 0:3

 

Olimpia Unia secured its place in the 2015/16 quarter-finals, as well as Eslovs, while Chartres confirmed its top position in Group C as unique undefeated team  – that is the short report of the matches which were held on Friday night. Polish club beat away Hennebont 3:2 in the Group B, actual ETTU Cup winner Eslovs was beaten by Werder Bremen 3:2, as Chartres had an easy job against Borussia (3:0) which played without two best players Timo BOLL and Patrick FRANZISKA.

 

Yoshida KAII was a hero of Olimpia Unia Grudziadz. Japanese beat Kalinikos KREANGA in the first and Quentin RIBINOT in the last encounter. Third point got Yaroslav ZHMUDENKO overcame Greek in straight sets. Polish club now occupies second spot in the Group B with 3-2 score, while third Niederosterreich has 2-3 (Olimpia Unia is better in mutual games having 3:0 win and 1:3 loss).

 

Super exciting match was seen in Bremen, as Werder beat Eslovs 3:2, but it wasn’t enough to stop Swedish club on its way to the TTCLM quarter-final. Guests leveled after four matches thanks to XU Hui who beat both his opponents in straight games, Constantin CIOTI and Bastian STEGER. The final chapter was reserved for CIOTI and Robert SVENSSON who won twice 5-match thrillers in previous season. But, this time Swede missed three match balls in the fifth set, although he managed to turn the score from 7:9 to 10:9.

 

As it mentioned, Borussia wasn’t ready for the real showdown against Chartres. Par GERELL, GAO Ning and Robert GARDOS had no mercy against Kamal ACHANTA, Panagiotis GIONIS and Borussia`s coach Danny HEISTER respectively, winning all three encounters in straight games. However Dusseldorf`s side still has good chances to reach quarter-final.
