Overview

Austria and Germany are neighbours not only geographically, but also at the bottom of the current Pool B standings. They each lost their first two matches in Brussels and, after a day off competition, will be desperate to seek their first EuroVolley victory in Antwerp.

"There has always been an Austrian-German rivalry in sports and it gives us some extra motivation for the match today. It's a derby and we are excited about it. We hope we can repeat the 1978 Cordoba miracle and take a 3-2 victory."

Anton Menner
Outside spiker of Austria

"After suffering losses in the first two games we played, it is really important for us to win this match!"

Germany shut out Austria to claim first EuroVolley win

Article

Germany achieved their first win at EuroVolley 2019. In their third Pool B game, coach Andrea Giani’s men defeated neighbouring Austria in three sets to stay well in contention for the next round. Already on a 0-3 win-loss record, the Austrians are lagging behind, but can still hope for a miracle to help them into the eighthfinals.


Germany played this match without their regular captain Lukas Kampa, who stayed back at the hotel with stomach problems, and star opposite György Grozer, who wore the second libero jersey because of a leg injury. A very competitive first set could have gone either way. Austria’s Alexander Berger fired 10 points in attack, but to no avail – the Germans were more concentrated in the money time to win the set by 25-23. The next two sets were no contest. The German block-defence performance provided many solutions on the way to an emphatic conclusion - 25-15, 25-16.


On an 18-point tally, including two of Germany’s 13 stuff blocks and two aces, Simon Hirsch was the best scorer of the match, while Berger finished with 16 for Austria.


On Tuesday, Austria will face Spain, while Germany will enjoy another day off before their game against Slovakia on Wednesday.

“I played instead of Grozer today. I am always ready to help the team, but I certainly hope he recovers soon. I hope we continue winning. In the first set our block-defence system was not so good, but improved for the rest of the game.”
