Germany edge Russia in tiebreak to cause first #EuroVolleyW sensation
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Women

Luxembourg, August 26, 2019. Germany were responsible for a major sensation on the fourth day of competition as they beat Russia 3-2 in the CEV EuroVolley 2019 Women Pool D in Bratislava, Slovakia. Reigning World and European champions Serbia, co-hosts Turkey and Poland, as well as Italy and the Netherlands all boast an immaculate record of three wins in as many matches to assert their leading role as well as their credentials to vie for the top honours of the continental showpiece event. Hungary, on the other hand, had to accept a heavy 0-3 loss at the hands of Azerbaijan despite the support provided by 2,500 fans at Papp Laszlo Sports Arena in Budapest. Slovakia, on the other hand, celebrated their third triumph in Pool D to secure their spot in the 8th Finals – a historic achievement for the country in women’s Volleyball.

•    Despite not playing for half of the match, their star players Tijana Boskovic and Brankica Mihajlovic were the top scorers of the game with 14 points apiece. France’s outside hitter Manon Moreels sustained an injury – she eventually went to hospital to assess the severity of it.
•    Co-hosts Turkey emulated Serbia to secure their third straight victory as well, even though they dropped a set as well in their fixture with Bulgaria.
