We've been witnessing very exciting semifinal clashes at the Asian Women's Volleyball Championship.



Let’s start with a game of the reigning champions Japan. They didn’t enter the game in a good way so Korea took the opportunity to take the lead 1-0. 

In another three sets, the crowd watched an amazing and super-tight match and fortunately for the Japanese fans, they won them all and took the spot in the final. These three last sets were ended with two points of difference which means that the Japanese girls were a little bit luckier and with more focus in decisive moments.

China – Thailand clash was even more exciting than a game between Korea Japan. Thailand have surprised China even though they were trailing by 1-0, losing the first set 25-23. The third set was extremely difficult, since both sides pushed to the limits, playing 66 rallies. 

Luckily for Thai fans, the fourth set also went to Thailand to win the game and to schedule a match vs. Japan in the finals.

Asian Championship 2019, semifinals:

Korea – Japan 1-3 (25-22, 23-25, 24-26, 26-28)

China – Thailand 1-3 (25-23, 22-25, 32-34, 23-25)
