The fourth day of EuroVolley Group D in Cluj-Napoca starts with Finland against Ukraine. This is the third match for both teams, who are yet to win any game during the current competition. While Finland has dramatically lost their opener against Sweden, team Ukraine has not won any set so far, having faced Group D favourites Turkey and Netherlands. Ukraine's secret weapon will be Olesia Rhykliuk, who put on some impressive displays in the previous two encounters. Team Finland will be looking to open up play for Anna Czakan and Piia Korhonen, who can get them the first win of the tournament.
