"We finished the pool stage unbeatean at the top in the CEV Volleyball European Golden League 2022. We are in the final four for the 4th time in a row. We are happy that we worked together and achieve this great results. Our main goal is to be the first team to win this tournament for the third time in a row. All teams are very strong teams in the final four. We will play against the home team in the semis. It will be a tough match. We’re ready for the battle."

Nedim Özbey
Head Coach of Türkiye national team

"We’re very excited to play in the Final Four once again. After the group stage, we continued our preparations in Maribor, Slovenia. We worked very hard. I think everybody should take the attitude that we're working to be a champion, that we want to be a champion in everything that we do. Good luck to all participating teams in the final four."

Bedirhan Bülbül
Player of Türkiye national team

"We have prepared well for the last week, we are in great shape and full of confidence, we are starting this semi-final match with the team we know well. We played a friendly training match with them last year in Istanbul, but that is not the right measure, because we combined both of them with the team. In any case, we know their strength, we respect them, but we also want to win in front of our audience, which I believe will be our player more."

Türkiye again at a Golden #EuroLeagueM Final

Article

The first set set the tone for an exciting and intense battle ahead in the match. Although Türkiye started slightly better (4-2), Croatia pushed hard. A point-for-point race marked the last minutes of the part, and even though the host had a two set points, the 2021 winners from Türkiye denied them, to eventually open in their favour after a great set by captain Arslan Eksi and finishing spike by Bedirhan Bülbül. As many as 18 winning spikes helped the Turkish team to take the set. However, on the other side of the net, Croatia were better on the blocking (three to one) and aced two times (to one).

The players of head coach Cedric Enard were determined not to lose any more chances. They stepped up their game in the second set(10-7, 15-12), and even though the back-to-back defending champions from Turkey tried to get closer, in no moment did Croatia lose concentration (even when, on the other side of the net, was the 2021 MVP, Adis Lagumdzija). Kruno Nikacevic with an ace helped his team to tie the score. Three aces and three kill blocks were crucial for the hosts in this set.

Only in the first minutes of the third set were the teams equal. Türkiye then speeded up, leaving no doubts over their domination in this set (16-10, 21-13). The reigning champions lost concentration for a moment (23-19), but Croatia couldn’t put them against the wall, as they suffered from own errors as well (11).

The Turkish team dominated on the court in the last set, leading with a comfortable point-difference throughout most of the time. Four kill blocks and two aces made the difference for the players of head coach Nedim Özbey, as on the other hand, Croatia recorded four more points from attacks. However, Türkiye’s greater level of concentration (only one error in this set, to seven by Croatia) became the key component to the set-win.

"The match was difficult, we can be satisfied, we showed a very good game. All my teammates performed good, I could have contributed more. Congratulations to the Turkish national team on the victory, they are a very good team and I think that in the end, the length of the bench was crucial. After the second set, they changed practically the whole line-up and beat us. We are going on to fight for the third place against Ukraine, and we hope that we will win tomorrow.

Marko Sedlaček
Captain of Croatia

"It's a Final Four! Of course, we were expecting a tough match. We had a difficult fixture, especially in the first two sets, but in the end, we prevailed, and we are happy to be again at the Final. I hope that tomorrow, we will beat Czechia and will lift the trophy for a third time in a row!"
