Less than 24 hours after a stunning win against the Czech Republic, Poland dominated another rival at the men’s volleyball European Championships, Montenegro, winning 3:0 (25:10, 25:17, 25:19).
Due to the fact that Poland had little time to rest after the Monday match, coach Vital Heynen benched Michał Kubiak, Piotr Nowakowski, Fabian Drzyzga and Maciej Muzaj, who had played in each of the previous games.
This decision proved to be a good one, since Montenegro was arguably the weakest rival in the group. Dawid Konarski with 13 points and Aleksander Śliwka with 11 turned out to be good replacements for the first team players.
The game had a similar course as the one against the Czechs. It took slightly more than 70 minutes for Poland to sweep their rival, although with every set, the players from Montenegro seemed to slightly improve their play.
Nevertheless, it was not enough to grab even a single set against the reigning world champions. Poland have a 4-0 record and retained the lead in Group D. After a one day break, they will play their last group game against Ukraine, on Thursday.
