Match Report

Bulgaria laboriously get passed Romania in straight sets

Article 13 September 2019

Despite the commanding score, Bulgaria struggled in the end of each set to win the match. Showing at times some signs of fatigue and self-sufficiency, Silvano Prandi’s men still managed to keep a clean sheet. In a game with many short rallies, Romania succeeded in siding out whenever reception was perfect. On the other hand, when their passing level decreased, it was hard for them to compete with the Bulgarian block.

 

Claiming their second straight win, Bulgaria virtually took the lead of Pool A before Italy’s and France’s upcoming matches, respectively today and tomorrow against Greece. With two losses and some tiredness, Romania will try to win their first set on Sunday after one well-deserved day off.

"It was a good win for us. Luckily we won that first tight set otherwise it could have ended differently. Romania was a team I did not know but they greatly surprised me, they played really well. We'll have to make fewer mistakes against teams like Italy or France in order to win those."

Todor Skrimov

"When you lose two games 3-0, it's difficult. It's true that we were closer to win a set today, but we don't have enough experience in the ends of sets in order to really earn something."

Laurentiu Lica
Romania's captain

"After this game, I am upset. We started badly, then we recovered, but after that we made some stupid mistakes. Bulgaria missed less than us, and that is why they won 3-0."

"I'm happy that everybody gave 100% today to get 6 points after two matches. If we keep playing like this, better and better, our main goal is to go to Paris for the finals."
