The Serbia National Team made the sixth victorious step, without a single failure, at the CEV Women’s EuroVolley 2021, staying firmly on the path towards defending the throne. Against Hungary, at home in Belgrade, the team coached by Zoran Terzić recorded another straight-set win (actually, all six wins were achieved with the same result) in the tournament – 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-17). Such an outcome was pretty much expected given that Hungary barely made it to the playoffs as it claimed fourth place in Pool C with just one victory and promotion earned thanks to the results of the remaining last-round matches in the pool. Tijana Bošković was Serbia’s most efficient player with 19 points. Anett Németh scored 14 for Hungary.

After watching Ukraine’s confident play in the first set against their national team, Polish fans feared the fate that Bulgaria (yesterday) and Croatia (today) experienced, i.e. the elimination while from the roles of favorites. However, Jacek Nawrocki’s ladies managed to get rid of the pressure of their rival and compose themselves in the continuation of the match in Plovdiv (Bulgaria). Poland had as many as six players in double digits in scoring with Zuzanna Efimienko-Młotkowska at the forefront (17 points, including nine blocks!). Nadiia Kodola tallied 12 points for Ukraine. Yuliya Gerasymova made seven blocks.
