Overview

The second match of the day matches hosts Romania with the Netherlands aces. Romania will have an extremely difficult task to win against the dutch, even though they will have massive support from home fans in the BTarena. For team Romania, Alexia Căruțașu, a rising star, is the top scorer, while Ciucu is the best receiver in the group. From team NED, Julien Lohuis has caught the eye so far during the tournament and will aim to help her team extend their 100% win percentage (0 sets lost so far) even further. Can Romania driven by the home fans stop the Dutch from having a perfect record? We are about to see!

Another success for the Netherlands!

Article

In the second match of the day, host Romania faced favourites team Netherlands in what has been a great volleyball match. With a fantastic crowd cheering for the hosts present at the BTarena, Netherlands have started the match in wonderful fashion. In defence, the Netherlands have been the better team, while also taking the lead with good service. Romania never found their rhythm and the first set ended with a very blunt 25-12 on the scoreboard.The story of the second set however is entirely different. Romania’s attacking gears were fixed and led by Rodica Buterez, the hosts were not having any of what team Netherlands wanted to send their way. The crowd pushed the team forward and the hosts finally got the lead in the game after a tense rally. 25-27 and the game is on.The third set started in an extremely entertaining fashion, with team Romania maintaining their spirits and going head-to-head with team Netherlands. The experience of team Netherlands showed in the end, and Romania couldn’t keep up with the change in play. The Netherlands take the lead, 2-1 on sets.The final set of the game was a short one, with lots of errors by team Romania. Team NED was impressive with their blocks and their quick build-up play. Even though the Romanian team seemed to get back in the game, team NED used their experience to quickly seal the 4th set.

Celeste Plak told us that "The first set was good for us, we served very well. We let them come in the game again and it was a little hard to get back on track. Last set was again the best volleyball we could play. THe upcoming match versus Turkey will determine who will win pool D"

After the match, Romania’s Marina Cojocaru declared: "we had to put the match from the previous day aside and play our best volleyball today. We are happy that we could take one set today. We also want to thank everyone in the stands for the incredible support. We will try to win for the great fans in the following match. Go team Romania!"
