Overview

The defending champion Serbia finished 2nd in Pool A after losing to the host Poland in a nail-biting five-setter. They recorded four victories, but the last of them against Greece came in unexpected five-setter. MVP from 2019 - Uroš Kovačević scored in pool phase 74 points playing in four out of five games and hopes to help his team to become the first back-to-back European champion since Italy in 2003 and 2005. On the other side, Turkey can count on Adis Lagumdžija who with 104 became the second best scorer of pool phase. Turkey earned surprising 3-1 victory over Russia in their opening game, but in their last match they lost 3-2 to Finland finishing 3rd in Pool C. The teams locked horns only twice at EuroVolley in 1958 (Turkey's win) and in 2011 (Serbia's win).

"If you don't respect your opponent things like that happen. It was a case against Greece and also today. We didn't learn from the past and this is a mistake, because we gave a chance to the opponent to take us into their game and then it's difficult to play. I think that if you want to be the champion you have to play like a champion. Always take the opponent in your game and show your game like we did in the first set. We didn't give them a chance to play what they know and it was our game."

Marko Ivovic
outside hitter of Serbia

"I think we played a great game. There were a couple mistakes at the end in the last set, and also in the end of fourth set, because we could close this game 3-1, but it is what it is - we lost. They fought better than us, but we also thought very well. I'm proud of my team. We gave our best. We spent together almost three months, there is a great group of people and I'm always happy to be with them."
