Turkey have crushed Azerbaijan’s dreams of winning a medal in the 2017 CEV Women’s Volleyball European Championship, 3-1 (22-25, 25-21, 25-14, 25-8).

 

After losing the bronze medal match 12 years ago, the Azerbaijani National Team had even a better chance to top this result in front of own crowd in Baku in the EuroVolley 2017 but failed despite making the best possible start of the game versus Turkey.

The nearly sold out “National Gymnastics Arena” in the Azerbaijani capital, for the second day in a row, saw their favourites claiming the first set but was eventually silenced by precise attacks of the Turkish National Team (55%) in which duo Neriman Özsoy - Gözde Kırdar stood out with 23 and 22 points, respectively. Kübra Akman Çalışkan added 5 kill blocks. As usual, Polina Rahimova highlighted Azerbaijan with 19 points.

Turkey added their third European Champs medal, the second bronze.

Fener should not let Bricio go. It is a massve mistake of Terzic.
If he really wants Mihajlovic, let club buy her too. Reply

ITA W: Fenerbahçe say goodbye to Bricio – Mexican player moves to Scandicci

I read she said earlier that she is leaving to go back to the Italian league. Was she really waived? She is a great player. She is one of the reason why Fenerbahe is doing so well this season along with Vargas. Reply

Worldofvolley finds out: Naz and Mihajlović rejoin Fenerbahçe for next season

Re: @Vic-ers
No way to bring a Japanese libero to Fenerbahçe because of the restriction for foreign players. And also Mamba doesn't look like to join Fenerbahce because of Melissa Vargas. Reply
