BULGARIA v BELARUS

Article 9 September 2021

A direct battle for the promotion into the round of sixteen in Ostrava’s Group B has its winner. Bulgaria defeated Belarus 3:1 (25:13, 25:18, 24:26, 25:22). After a very one-sided first two sets, Belarus got back in the game but it was Bulgaria who handled the ending of the match better.

 

Belarus had a better start to today’s game. Bulgaria made a lot of mistakes and quickly were losing 1:5. However after that they began to use their biggest weapon – their serve. Firstly they equalized (6:6) and then went into the lead which was still increasing. Todor Skrimov, Martin Atanasov and opposite Tsvetan Sokolov were perfect in attack. Belarus tried everything to find a way how to score, but their receive wasn’t good at all and Bulgaria deservedly won the opening set.

 

The match continued in a similar spirit even in the second set. Bulgaria quickly grabbed the lead (6:3) and extended it to five points after Sokolov’s attack. The difference between both sides was enormous. Not only was Bulgaria great at serving but their defence was on fire as well. They won the second set by seven points (25:18).

 

Belarus didn’t give up their chances of getting promoted and went into the third set with commitment. Risky serves meant a few mistakes however they took the lead (4:1) and with good defence held it for a long time. Bulgaria turned the score around in the second half of the set and created three points lead (17:14). Substituted setter Kanstantsin Tsiushkevich set up great chances for his team’s spikers. Opposite Vladzislav Babkevich scored most of them. A dramatic ending that Belarus handled better and won 26:24.

 

They started well even in the fourth set (7:4) but both teams were nervous. A huge amount of mistakes meant changing the lead from one side to the other. Belarus entered the final part with an advantage in terms of points (19:15) but it didn’t help them. Bulgaria equalized and Sokolov arranged the match point with his super spike. With a little luck, Bulgaria took advantage and qualified for the eighth finals.

 

Tsvetan Sokolov, Bulgarian opposite: “It was difficult for us but I am very happy. It was one game – all in. If we lost, we would go home. Fortunately we have won and we stay in the tournament. We fought really hard in the end and were rewarded for it.”

 

Viktar Beksha, Belarusian coach: “First two sets it was a game on one goal. They risked a lot and were good in it. We had a bad reception. However Bulgarians believed too early that they won and we used it as our advantage. We improved our defence and attack. Unfortunately in the fourth set (19:16) we made many unforced mistakes and lost this game.”
