The Czech Republic and Germany will decide on the new CEV U18 Men’s Volleyball European Championship gold medalists.

 

One of the co-hosts of the 2018 CEV U18 European Championship, the Czech Republic, upset one of the main title favorites Italy in the semifinals in Zlín despite trailing in sets twice, 3-2 (21-25, 25-19, 19-25, 25-15, 15-13).

Dukla Liberec youth team outside hitter Matouš Drahoňovský once again demonstrated a high-class volleyball for this age category as he topped the winning side with 23 points. ČZU Praha youth team middle blocker Radek Baláž made 7 of 23 kill blocks that the Czech Republic produced as a team! In Italy, Alessandro Michieletto from Diatec Trentino youth team scored 23 points (4 aces and 4 kill blocks) for the „Azzurri“.

Germany booked their ticket for the final over Russia with a straight-set win, partially 25-23, 25-13, 25-18. Simon Pfretzschner, who competes for Division 3 side ASV Dachau, was the best scorer for Germany with 15 points. His rival from the country’s Division 3, Maximilian Kersting, made 5 kill blocks. Outside hitter of Dagestan Makhachkala (Division 2) youth team, Omar Kurbanov, scored 11 points for „Zbornaya“.

The final match between the Czech’s and Germany will be a rerun of their Pool 1 encounter.

ITA M: Stoytchev no longer at helm of Modena!

Bad decision on Modena's part. Stoychev is a good coach with plenty of titles won. He got the almost brand new team this year, and it takes more than one year to get cohesive and high performing unit. Look at the Trentino, they have same problems. Two best teams in the league are Lube and Perugia and they had same core team players for years.
Plus he had Ngapeth who was causing the problems. He is a good player but completely unpredictable, and he plays when he feels like it. Unlike Juantorena who you can count on to perform either well or extremely well. Ngapeth complained about Stoychev and not having the freedom to play as he wants. I can't wait to see what he will say after he moved to Zenit because I highly doubt that Alekno will let Ngapeth do whatever he wants. Reply
