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.

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
