The „Oranje“ equaled their result from the previous edition of the continental championship as they outplayed one of the EuroVolley 2017 home sides, Azerbaijan by a 3-2 (20-25, 25-19, 25-19, 25-27, 15-12), in the semifinals which will be hard to forget in the nearly sold out „National Gymnastics Arena“ in Baku!

The semis was marked by the shooters showdown of Anne Buijs from The Netherlands and Polina Rahimova from Azerbaijan. The home superstar prevailed but her team failed to advance to what would be a historical final match. Nevertheless, the Azerbaijani National Team will have the chance to win their first-ever medal in the European Championship in the match for the 3rd place, on Sunday, October 1.

Buijs notched 33 points and was followed by Lonneke Slöetjes with 25. On the other side, Rahimova made 38 points! Nataliya Mammadova added 16.
