Turkey, Poland and Slovakia celebrate second straight home wins
CEV EuroVolley 2019 Women

Luxembourg, August 24, 2019. On Saturday, three of the four co-hosts of the history-making CEV EuroVolley 2019 Women celebrated their second straight victories, much to the delight of large, raucous home crowds. Turkey, however, had to stand the furious comeback of Team Finland, who were close to causing a real sensation at Ankara Sports Hall, where earlier in the afternoon Greece beat France 3-0 to claim their first EuroVolley success in 27 years. Hosts Poland and Belgium’s Yellow Tigers were just dominant in their respective Pool B matches with Portugal and Slovenia, while Slovakia and Germany improved their record to two wins in as many matches in Pool D. The only home team to suffer a setback were Hungary, who lost 1-3 the ‘derby’ with Romania, while in Pool C Croatia made amends for Friday’s loss to Azerbaijan through a 3-1 win against Estonia.
