PSG surrenders to danger, skiing in virtual reality… Your sports weekend in Île-de-France

Since the beginning of the season, Le Parisien has offered a selection of issues and events not to be missed in Île-de-France before each weekend. Their national selections being in track, basketball and rugby are in off mode in the championship. Therefore, the news focuses on handball (men, the French women’s team competes in the Euros), and volleyball.

Poster not to be missed: PSG could lose a lot in Coubertin

HANDBALL. The suspense continues and it’s exciting. Accustomed to dominating the French championship, PSG this time shares the lead of the Starligue standings with two other teams, and not just anyone: Nantes and Montpellier. Day 9 scheduled for this weekend risks upsetting the top three and the Parisians are far from calm. They really welcome Aix, who trails by four lengths.

Thierry Anti’s men, led by Nicolas Claire, Romain Lagarde and an excellent pair of goalkeepers (Wesley Pardin/Alejandro Romero) have everything to gain by winning at Coubertin (Sunday, 4pm), especially after Luc Steins and his friends are few. tough with a very busy month of November (7 matches), as shown by hard won last weekend against Chambéry.

Number: 0

HANDBALL. In the Proligue, Pontault-Combault is the leader after eight days, and above all the only team, if we count the Starligue, should not not to have lost a single match. In Sarrebourg (7), Guillaume Saurina’s players will have to be careful, but they will have the favor of predictions. Like Massy (11), who takes Besançon (13) and Tremblay (4) who has only successes (4) at the moment outside and who will challenge Nancy (nine).

Team to watch: Le Plessis-Robinson to confirm

VOLLEYBALL. It could be the win that starts it all. Last Sunday, Le Plessis-Robinson made the perfect lap at the Vélodrome de Roubaix by beating (3-1) Tourcoing. The owls of Cédric Logeais (9), carried by Samuel Jeanlys, the young French defector from Poitiers, have the opportunity this Saturday to confirm in their gymnasium against Nice, the red lantern, which won only one of its seven matches money. The task looks much more complicated for Paris. Defeated at home by Chaumont, the leader, Dorian Rougeyron’s men are now attacking another summit. After dominating Montpellier, the reigning champion, then they fell behind and with a point, in front of Tourcoing, they go this Sunday to Tours, the dolphin of Chaumont.

Among the girls, Levallois is not a summit, but an Everest with the arrival of Nantes. Everything separates the two formations that face each other this Saturday (20:00). On the one hand, Franciliennes who are still looking for their first success and who will rely on the best libero in the championship, Tatiana Rizzo. On the other hand, an unbeatable leader and a deadly weapon, the American Taylor Mims.
