Slovakia hope to record their first victory at EuroVolleyM 2021. On Monday, they face Latvia in the first match of Day 6 in Pool D. The Slovaks started the tournament with a 0-3 defeat to pool favorites team France, and continued with a 2-3 thriller against co-hosts of the tournament Estonia. Latvia’s EuroVolleyM 2021 journey started off extremely well, with a surprising 3-1 win over Estonia. However, in their next match against Croatia, the team had to leave the court disappointed with a 2-3 loss. With both Slovakia and Latvia fighting hard for progressing to the next stage of the tournament, fans can expect the teams to put up a great battle today.

Match Report

Slovakia open the standings winning the tie break

Article 6 September 2021

Slovakia claimed their first victory at EuroVolleyM 2021, after a five-set thriller against Latvia. This outcome means that all teams of Pool D are still in the running for qualifying to the next stage of the tournament. While two favourites France and Germany can feel comfortable at the top, Latvia, Estonia, Croatia and Slovakia will fight for “All or Nothing” in the upcoming days.

 

Latvia did not get a good start of the game, giving Slovakia a solid lead which continued to grow during the set. Latvia had trouble finishing their attacks, while Slovakia recorded the impressive 7 block points in the first set.

 

Once again Latvia got off to a rocky start and fell behind 13-19. However, the Latvians were not ready to give up just yet. Stepping up their own block game this time, Avo Keel’s team got back on their feet, and ended the set 25-23 with another block by Atvars Ozolins.

 

Inspired by their impressive comeback, Latvia took off strong in the third set and with a solid 63% attack against Slovakia’s 35% took the 2-1 set lead.

 

Tables had turned around again in the fourth set. Slovakia, clearly willing to take the game to the fifth set, put up an inspired performance to take a 25-19 win of the set.

 

Slovakia were unstoppable in the fifth set. Taking a 9-2 lead was enough to secure the game 15-7.

“The game had a lot of ups and downs but in the fourth set, we finally found our rhythm. This is a very precious victory for us as Latvia is one of our main opponents for qualifying to the playoffs. The situation is very interesting in our pool right now and our focus is set on the upcoming match with Croatia.”

Tomas Krisko
Spiker of Slovakia

“We knew it would be a tough match and I think we were ready, but today we missed stability. In the last set, Slovakia did a good job on the block. I don´t know what the chances to advance ahead are now. Yes, we have some points but now we have to see how the other teams will perform.”
