The three out for places in the 2019 CEV Men’s Volleyball Golden European League Finals are secured one round before the end of the pool stage.

 

Turkey and the Netherlands have taken their spots in the 2019 Golden European League Final Four as pool leaders, joining the hosts Estonia.

Turkey maintained their invincibility in Pool A by beating Belgium 3-1 (25-20, 23-25, 25-14, 25-16) on Day 5 at home in Trabzon, confirming the qualification for the final tournament. Burutay Subaşı finished the match as the best scorer with 16 points for Turkey.

The Netherlands took the spot in the Final Four as they downed Estonia in straight sets, partially 25-19, 25-19, and 25-17 on home soil in Hoogeveen. Thus, the Dutch side secured the top spot in Pool B before the last round with only 2 points more than Spain and Croatia but with two wins more. Thijs ter Horst tallied 18 points for the Netherlands in the match against Estonia.

As for the remaining pool, Pool C, Belarus and Ukraine will fight for the top spot and a place in the Final Four in a direct clash on Day 6 as they both recorded wins today, against Finland and the Czech Republic, respectively. Actually, a defeat to Ukraine (3-0) eliminated the Czechs from participating in the Final Four.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

ECH U16 W: Turkey outplay defending champions Italy to win gold medal

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
