Now The Netherlands are on the second place with 10 points and only one defeat while Belgium are on the bottom without points and win.

Netherlands captain Maret Balkestein – Grothues: “It wasn’t a good game, we made a lot of mistakes, especially at the reception. It was difficult to play, but our block was rather stable, I think we won because of that.” 

Belgium captain Charlotte Leys: “It was a disappointing game for us tonight, we didn’t get to our level, we have to think over that match. We have to focus on ourselves and to show a nice game.”
