Turkey National Team swept the Netherlands in the quarter-finals of the 2019 CEV European Women’s Volleyball Championship which they co-host with three more countries.



Turkey (No.2 in Pool A) recorded a straight-set win against the Netherlands (did not lose a single set prior to this game!) to become the second team to advance to the semifinals of 2019 EuroVolley. Recall that Serbia broke the ice by eliminating Bulgaria.

In a magnificent atmosphere of the 12,000 spectators at their Ankara Sport Hall, Turkey beat “Oranje” easier than it was expected: 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-20). The Netherlands were ahead two or more points at the first technical time-out in each of the three sets, allowing Turkey to break their spirit in the next few point afterwards.

Turkey dominated rivals in the block (10-4) but one other element was decisive in the victory of the side coached by Giovanni Guidetti – the reception (76%-45%). The gap was the same in excellent reception (53%-34%). Turkey’s libero Simge Şebnem Aköz stood out in the reception with an 86% success rate (14 digs; 79% excellent).

Hande Baladın top-scored for the winning side with 16 points, which was as much as Lonneke Slöetjes scored on the other side.

2019 CEV European Women’s Volleyball Championship quarter-finals:

Ankara (Turkey):

Serbia – Bulgaria 3-0 (25-19, 25-18, 28-26)

Turkey – Netherlands 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-20)

Łódź (Poland):

Italy vs. Russia, 18:00 C.E.T.

Poland vs. Germany, 20:30 C.E.T.
