The last clash between this two team has been played in June, where Belgium won the VNL match against Russia for 3-0

Belgium's only other victory against Russia in a major world level competition was in the 2015 World Grand Prix (3-0).

Russia had four different top scoring players in their five group matches at this year's European championship - Nataliya Gonchareva against Belarus and Switzerland, Gonchareva and Kseniia Parubets both against Germany, Irina Koroleva versus Spain, and Irina Voronkova against Slovakia.

Match Report

Russia move to #EuroVolleyW quarter-finals

Article 1 September 2019

Belgium made an impressive start. The team came back from 1-3 to 12-6 in the first set and having a lead for a long time, but in the end there was just one hero – Nataliya Goncharova. Her super spikes and 10 points just in the first set gave the success to Russia.


The Russians were clearly the better team in the second set and it looked like the game will end as another straight-sets victory for them. But Belgium raised the head, took the third set and kept chances alive. Belgium players fought until the very end, but Russia didn’t give them any chance to make a surprise.

Eighth-Finals Recap

Play

“It was the 1/8 Final, we had to play with concentration from the first moment. I am glad we have added another victory.”

Tatiana Romanova
Russia Setter

Vadim Pankov, Russia coach: “The most important thing is that we have won and are going further. We are prepared already for our next game.”

“We know very well, if we want to have a chance, we have to serve well and we did it in some moments. Russia is a team who knows how to get back, when it needs to. We are sad now, but Russia is a good team. We lost, that´s the reality. The key moment was probably the first set.”
