Match Report

France stun Bulgaria in straight sets

Article 16 September 2019

France solidly won against Bulgaria in straight sets, thus assured to place at least second in Pool A. In front of a rich crowd, Lyneel and his teammates made a display of efficiency and aesthetics. The French outside hitter, probably one of the players of EuroVolley 2019 so far, was once again outstanding.

 

After four matches won 3-0, France are ready to face Italy on Wednesday, potentially to know which team will top Pool A at the end of phase 1. Let us remind that Pool A will cross Pool C, occurring in Ljubljana, where Russia, Slovenia, Finland, Turkey, Belarus, and North Macedonia are facing each other.

"It was a bit hard to play three matches in a row, but we rested to be fully loaded for this particular game that was crucial for the ranking. I do not think they play at the level tonight but our victory was really efficient."
