Match Report

Slovenia couldn't shake Germany - leaves 8th finals without any sets won

Article

Germany and Slovenia was a blank spot for each other so far. They never met on an international level before. And Slovenia started with a surprise to Germany and took the lead after 12 balls in the first set, taking advantages of the fact that Germany had difficulties in the reception. But two spectacular blocks in a row by Wietsel and Poll (GER) in the end of first set was a first presentation on what the German team are capable of (6 blocks in total for first set). The second set was a different story, as Germany was more consistent and didn't let Slovenia come closer than 15 points, much due to inefficiency in attacks from Slovenia.

In third set again Slovenia took the command, but after 5 points Germany evened out and directed the rest of the set. Crucial moment in the last set were when the ball touched the hands of the Slovenian block after Louisa Lippmanns attack and coach Felix Koslovski won the challenge at 20-16 and Germany sensed the victory of this 8th Final.

Germany qualified for the Quarter Finals in Łódź on Wednesday against Poland 8.30 PM. Italy will play against Russia at 6 PM.

Eighth-Finals Recap

Play

"I'm glad we managed to finish this game in 3 sets because we saved some energy and it's much needed at this stage. Slovenians started very well in reception and were good in defence so we had to remotivate ourselves and be more focused in the next sets in order to achieve our goal"

Anna Pogany
libero for Germany
Eva Mori, setter of Slovenia:

"We knew that it will be a hard game. We are young team and we have to believe that we can win with everyone. Germany team was today better than us. But we live Lodz with the feeling that we've done a good job. I hope that we will achieve more in the future"
