1040 0

Serbia and Belgium met each other in a bronze medal match and Grbic’s side has managed to win it after a very uncertain five-set game.

 

It was an extremely tough match because we had to come back on the court after less than 24 hours since our loss to Germany. We had to overcome all emotional obstacles, so my greatest congratulations to my players for this unbelievable performance. They did their best on the court and gave everything to claim this medal. We overcame all emotional and physical difficulties and showed very good Volleyball. I think that we played better matches earlier in this tournament, but considering the fact that it was the last match and we won a tiebreak after such an intensive match yesterday, which also ended after five sets - I can say that we played the best we could,” says Grbic.

We showed that we deserved to play in this Final Four. At this very moment, I feel a little disappointed, because this medal was not so far, and it was incredible that we came back and we showed that we could play at this level. Now, we have two steps to learn. First, how to lose, and next step is to learn how to win,” says Heynen.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

CL M: Jastrzębski down Zenit for 2nd time, Russian side needs miracle to go to quarterfinals

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
