France beat European champion Serbia in straight sets at the opening of the European Olympic Qualification Tournament in Berlin: 3-0 (25-21, 25-21, 25-22).
With the exception of the 2nd set when they trailed by 5 points, the team coached by Laurent Tillie didn’t tremble a bit against the continental rulers, taking revenge on them for losing the semifinal of the last EuroVolley at home in Paris. A convincing victory of the “Les Bleus“ in Pool B was marked with a noticeable display of an opposite hitter Jean Patry (22 points) who took a place in the line-up due to an absence of Stéphen Boyer. Nemanja Petrić had 14 points for Serbia which he made through a high percentage of an attack (72%, 13/18).
