Toniutti guides Zaksa to victory in Poland’s PlusLiga
Benjamin Toniutti in high fives with teammates just before leading ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle to the top of the standings in Poland's PlusLiga.
ZAKSA took advantage of a shock defeat for Warsaw in the hands of Trefl Gdansk 3-0 (25-23, 26-25, 25-19), which secured Gdansk their spot in the quarterfinals of the playoffs, with two rounds of play remaining in the Regular Season.
The 30-year-old setter was named MVP of the game for his contribution to ZAKSA's win - his sixth such award this season, which brings him to the top of the list, on par with Grzegorz Lomacz of PGE Skra Belchatow, Piotr Nowakowski of Warsaw and Rafal Faryna of MKS Bedzin.
Toniutti is in action again on Wednesday, when ZAKSA host Russia's Kuzbass Kemerovo in the return leg of their European Champions League quarterfinal. The French international was instrumental in the Polish side's 3-2 win in Russia in the first leg, last week.
