Frankfurt wasn't an opponent for Schalke - and yet it needs points

 Frankfurt wasn't an opponent for Schalke - and yet it needs points The 3-1 defeat against Frankfurt was ultimately deserved from Schalke's point of view and not really surprising. But Eintracht was not an opponent that the miners can compete with at the moment - and still, points are needed every now and then in such games, otherwise relegation remains a distant wish.

The Berlin volleys are not really getting going in the volleyball Bundesliga. "This season is difficult for us," said diagonal attacker Benjamin Patch after the 1: 3 (22:25, 27:29, 25:23, 22:25) defeat in the top game against VfB Friedrichshafen on Wednesday. The team from Lake Constance had already won the first leg 3-0. VfB is thus almost impossible to catch up with the capital city club in the table with an eight point lead.

On the last five match days of the main round, however, it could hit the Berlin even harder. The SWD powervolleys Düren are behind the table runners-up, only three points behind and one game less. The Düren also have the easier remaining program. To start the playoffs in third place in the end would be an unintentionally difficult challenge for the volleys.

In view of such a predicament, the American Patch advises: “We have to remain calm and patient in order to find our own rhythm. We haven't had that in the whole season. " Patch celebrated his comeback against Friedrichshafen in the last two sets. The diagonal attacker, together with setter Sergej Grankin, who was deployed over the full distance, and outside attacker Samuel Tuia are among the forces who are still looking for old form after long injury breaks. "We were just too unstable and not efficient enough," complained Volleys coach Cedric Enard after the game against arch rivals.

VfB competed in Berlin without their injured playmaker Dejan Vincic, the American Joseph Worsley represented him. Outstanding with the winner, Linus Weber trumped, who with his 32 points and an attack rate of 67 percent made the volleys defense look bad time and again. "He is a very important piece of the puzzle for us," said guest trainer Michael Warm.

The 21-year-old Weber was with the BR Volleys until 2019, but did not play a major role there. He moved to the Power Volleys in Milan and was hired in Friedrichshafen at the beginning of this season. After the impressive performance of the 1.99-meter giant on Wednesday in the Max-Schmeling-Halle, many at the BR Volleys will certainly regret not having held such a player in Berlin.
