Overview

The last match for Bulgaria in Pool A will be against the 2005 EuroVolley champions from Italy. Prandi's men may try and react after their tough loss to France yesterday, but Italy want to keep their clean sheet in EuroVolley 2019 before facing hosts France.

Article - Pool A Preview

"Tonight will be different, because yesterday we showed nothing. Today is a new day and a new challenge so I believe we will show better Volleyball than yesterday."

Match Report

Italy overcome Bulgaria in four sets

Article 17 September 2019

After a slow start, Italy defeated Bulgaria in four sets, thus assuring the first or second place of Pool A. Blengini’s men improved set after set to land on a clear victory in the last one, notably thanks to Juantorena and Zaytsev.

 

Bulgaria are through with pool matches and place third; they will therefore face the second team of Pool C, which still has to be determined given today's loss of home country Slovenia to North Macedonia. The final of Pool A between Italy and France will occur tomorrow at 8:30pm to decide the top two spots in the group.

"It was a tough start for us, hard to face the energy of the Bulgarians who served and defended really well in the first set. But then we recovered and eventually won. Tomorrow, we'll play against France, a match we've been waiting for for a long time. They play really well at the moment but we'll try to mess them."
