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: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
