Taipei, Chinese Taipei: Kamil Rychlicki was again in roaring form, scoring a match-high 17 points, as Al Rayyan overpowered Kazakhstan’s TNC Kazchrome VC in straight sets 28-26, 25-14, 25-23 in the 2019 Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship at the University of Taiwan (Tianmu) Gymnasium here on Friday.
Rayyan's second straight win helped them advance to the round of the top eight although they still have one match remaining against India’s Chennai Spartans. The Qataris had beaten Thailand’s Est Cola 3-1 on Thursday.
“It was a tough match. Kazchrome had very strong block and serves, so we need much to attack. Also, we tried our best to push ourself to bring out the reception on top the net in order that they can play with high balls. We work really well in this situation. Our serve and block are strong points for the win in this match,” said Al Rayyan head coach Carlos Eduardo.
“We now qualify to the top eight. Our next match against Chennai Spartans will be similar as Thailand. They moved so much when they played the ball. However, we will watch video to make ourselves ready for the match. We will do our best.”
