The four in a row for Toulouse. This Friday, at the opening of the 6th day of Ligue A, Toulouse battled to dominate Ajaccio 3-2 (25-23, 22-25, 22-25, 25-22, 15-11) but has a 4th success in a row in the league. In Occitania, the duel between Haut-Garonnais and Corsicans was contested with end-to-end reversals. With their backs to the wall, the locals managed to get by by winning the last two sets to continue, as in recent weeks, their momentum and thus temporarily take 4th place in the standings. Conversely, Ajaccio cannot do it with this 5th setback in as many games this season. In the other meeting of the day, Cannes returned to victory at Nantes 2-3 (25-22, 16-25, 25-19, 26-28, 13-15). After two defeats in a row in Ligue A, the Dragons came out on the outside after being led throughout the game and coming very close to defeat in the 4th round. More solid at the end, the Cannois pocketed their 4th success of the season and moved to 3rd, three lengths behind Tourcoing, the leader. Note that this 6th day will be greatly upset, with four meetings postponed.
