Both Chinese teams are eliminated from the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Shaoxing.


Turkish teams stood on the way of Chinese rivals in the last round of the pool stage. Firstly, Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul beat the official hosts Guangdong Evergrande in a direct clash for No.2 in Pool A, whilst the reigning champions VakıfBank Istanbul wrote down a straight-set victory over Tianjin Bohai Bank and became the other team from Pool A to advance to the semis. So now, there will be two Turkish-Italian encounters in the semifinals.

Tianjin were greatly weakened for a decisive duel. Their main superstar Zhu Ting injured her wrist in the match against Dentil Praia Clube in the third set, yesterday, so she was unable to play against her ex-team. Zhu commented on the seriousness of her injury after today’s match: “In fact, my wrist is old, and this time it’s more serious than before.“

The Swede Isabelle Haak chipped in with 24 points for VakıfBank. Li Yingying made 9 for Tianjin.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
