It was the Spacer’s fifth straight victory in Ligue A Nationale Volley (LNV) and their third successive 3-2 win. They now have 11 points from six games – three points behind Tourcoing in first.
Cambrai lose narrowly again
Cambrai were promoted from Ligue B last season and have two wins and three defeats from their five matches, sitting ninth in the league.
It’s their second consecutive 3-2 defeat after leading 2-1 – they lost to Sete in their previous match.
It was Cambrai’s first match in 19 days due to COVID-19 postponements, and their coach Gabriel Denys believes the lack of matches played a part in them tiring towards the end.
He said: “It is true but it’s not the only reason. We must not forget we played against a side who wants to be at the top of the league.”
Theo Faure scored 22 points for Toulouse, while Nicolas Burel scored 11. Meanwhile, Daniel Cagilari scored 21 points for Cambrai. Toulouse player Nicolas Jovovic was named MVP of the match.
