"Until now, we were just fighting every game to build up our experience in order to arrive ready for today's game. We are confident today because we beat them in Silver League recently. We know it's going to be different but we still think we can win."

Greece closer to qualification after win over Romania
After three losses each, Greece and Romania faced each other to get their first win in EuroVolley 2019. And after a very tight match, Greece eventually prevailed in four sets partly thanks to outside-spiker Athanasios Protopsaltis and his 20 points. Romania put up a great fight but could not manage to close out sets 1 and 3, and fell quickly behind in set 4.
Greece took a great edge tonight towards grabbing the fourth qualifying ticket for the knock-out phase. But Portugal, and even Romania, can still steal it. It will all be decided in the next two days with their two remaining matchups with Portugal.
