In the second set, the visitors could easily get to 2-0. During the whole set Serbia was up to the task while the Bulgarians made many mistakes. On the scoreboard stood 18-20, when the team of coach Kolaković has scored five points in a row. The last point won Uroš Kovačević from the second line.

The third set was a merely a formality. Atanasijević and Podraščanin were unstoppable at the net, while on the other hand Sokolov, Aleksiev and Yosifov  had no solution.
