Netherlands shatter Azerbaijan’s dreams to vie for second EuroVolleyW crown

Baku, Azerbaijan, September 30, 2017. The Netherlands shattered Azerbaijan’s dreams of home glory as the ‘Oranjes’ claimed a dramatic 3-2 victory (20-25, 25-19, 25-19, 25-27, 15-12) to vie for their second continental title in history. After their spectacular collective effort, which silenced an almost sell-out crowd in attendance at the iconic National Gymnastics Arena, the Oranjes have at least equalled their result from the 2015 edition of the European Championship – where they won silver – and on Sunday will take on Serbia in an effort to claim their second European crown. As for Azerbaijan, the hosts have to be content to play for bronze – and on Sunday, they will try to make amends for this setback by taking what would be their first-ever European Championship medal.

Four elite teams still in contention for the crown at EuroVolleyW

Baku, Azerbaijan, September 30, 2017. We are down to four at the 2017 women’s EuroVolley – including three of the semi-finalists from the 2015 edition, i.e. The Netherlands, Serbia and Turkey. The Netherlands are trying to improve on the silver medal they won on home soil two years ago but before they can vie for gold, they will first have to edge past hosts Azerbaijan in the semis – with the players from the ‘Land of Fire’ making their second-ever appearance in a #EuroVolleyW semi-final, the first since 2005. Serbia and Turkey will cross swords in the second semi-final in a repeat of the bronze medal match from the 2015 edition – which Serbia won 3-0.
