Turkey swept Russia in front of own crowd in Ankara on Day 3 of the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Nations League – Week 2: 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-20).

The winning side was led on the court by Meryem Boz (25 points/3 kill blocks) and Zehra Güneş (6 kill blocks, 3 aces). Tatiana Iurinskaia scored 15 points for Russia.Turkey have a nearly perfect score after two weeks of the competition (5-1). It is a completely opposite situation for Russia (1-5).



Japan maintained their unbeaten run in Week 2 as they beat Germany in straight sets thanks to Yuki Ishii who scored 14 points. Louisa Lippmann noted one point less on the side of Germany. 

By winning three matches in a row for the first time in the Nations League, Japan annulled a poor display in the first week (0-3). On the other hand, Germany have only one win so far (1-5).
