Serbia outclased Turkey and will play for the gold medal

The team of Serbia will play for the third time in the history of the European Championship finals, after 2007 and 2011, and in addition provided a total of five medals on this competitions.


Serbia, of our players Bojana Zivkovic, Brankica Mihajlovic, Tijana Malesevic and Ana Bjelica, coached by Zoran Terzic, reached the finals of the European championship 2017 in Baku, with win over Turkey 3:0 (25:17, 25:12 and 25:21), after 78 minutes of the game. Serbia easily disposed of Turkey – as much as they had done earlier this summer in a match on schedule for the Intercontinental Round of the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix. The gold medal match will be a repeat of the game Serbia and the Netherlands played last Saturday in Pool D in Ganja – where the Serbians recorded one of their four 3:0 victories in the tournament so far. Zoran Terzić, head coach of Serbia: “At this moment Serbia has more quality than Team Turkey, that’s for sure, but also Turkey yesterday played an incredibly good game and surprised everybody by beating Russia 3:0. They definitely exerted a lot of emotion yesterday and could not play on the same level today – especially when we speak about motivation and energy on the court, which made it a little easier for us. However, that does not really matter now – we played a very good game and we have to be satisfied with the result. The final with the Netherlands? Definitely the two best teams in this championship and I hope for an amazing game tomorrow.”
