Featured Players

In what will be their opening match at the 2021 #EuroVolleyM, Croatia and Germany will lock horns in the first fixture of the day in Saku Suurhall, Tallinn.


Croatia participate in the European Championships for the fourth time, after 2005 (8th), 2007 (14th), and 2015 (15th). In their most recent participation, in 2015, they lost all three of their matches in straight sets, including against France and Estonia. Croatia's two European Championships match wins both came in 2005, against Portugal (3-2) and Ukraine (3-0).

Since reunification, Germany have competed in 13 of the 15 European Championships held, with the only exceptions the 1999 and 2005 editions. Their only podium finish in that period was a second place in 2017. East Germany's best result in the European Championships was a fourth place in 1967 and 1971. West Germany never finished higher than 11th (1981 and 1989).
Germany won their only European Championships meeting with Latvia, in 1995. The Germans have won five of their seven matches against Slovakia in this competition, including their two most recent in 2017 and 2019.

Croatia was struggling to find their weapon against Germany’s attacks, who were led by their opposite György Grozer (who has tallied a total of 16 points, 11 on attack (55%), 2 on block and 3 on service). 

Opposite Leo Andric was the only one to reach double digits for Croatia, with 12 points on attack and 1 block.

"Today, we didn’t make many mistakes and 3-0 is a good start. I think we can be happy"

Denys Kaliberda
Germany spiker

"This was not our day, our game. We didn’t show anything today, we just lost 0-3, very quickly, very easy. We lacked energy in our team, because that has always been our biggest weapon. But there is no time to think about this game and we need to forget it. We have to focus on the next one"
