WCH 2018 M: Poland victorious, Serbia advance to the semis, red cards for Kovacevic and Kubiak

by WoV

You are probably wondering how the Serbian team managed to reach the semis after the 3-0 defeat?



It’s because of the point-ration. Serbia have won enough points to secure the spot, now Italy need to beat Poland 3-0, with a much bigger point difference, if they want to qualify for the semis.

The whole game was very exciting. In the first set, Serbia had an advantage, had a control until the very end of the set but with some good moves Poland managed to save the set points of the rival and made a turnaround for taking the lead in sets!

In the second set, we saw again a better start from Serbia, however, Poland answered back, playing much better at the very end of the second part of the game 28:26.

The third set brought us the first conflict between the players of Serbia and Poland. Michal Kubiak and Uros Kovacevic received the red cards after this situation. Afterwards, the Polish team took the win after a better display at the end of the set: 25-22.

Bartosz Kurek (15) and Michal Kubiak (14) led Poland to the win, while Uros Kovacevic had 14 on the other side.
