Match Report

Germany one set away from the semis after second straight-set win

Article

Germany achieved their second straight-set victory in Pool A of the CEV Olympic qualifier in Berlin, this time producing a 3-0 (25-18, 25-23, 26-24) shutout of Belgium, who have yet to win their first set. Lukas Kampa delivered plenty of good spiking opportunities for the German attackers in the first set. Opposite Gyorgy Grozer kept the momentum from his performance against Czech Republic and contributed nine points towards the 25-18 win, including two kill blocks in the concluding moments of the set. Belgium were in control of the scoreboard through the most part of the second set, but with four consecutive points on Kampa’s serving, the home team changed the course of the set to take a 21-19 lead. Grozer stayed on fire, delivering two aces towards a set total of 10 points, and himself put the ball on the floor for the 25-23 close. In the epilogue of a rollercoaster third set, Grozer sustained a calf injury upon landing after a jump serve and stepped off the court leaving Belgium with a double set point. With some great performance in defence, the Germans persevered through the next four rallies, as Denys Kaliberda brought them to match point with a precision shot and converted it with a kill block to a 26-24 win. Grozer’s 22-point tally placed him on top of the match scorers, while Belgian captain Sam Deroo came next in 19 points.

Lukas Kampa, Germany's Captain: “We are very satisfied because we are almost in the semis. The challenge against Slovenia tomorrow will be the toughest one so far. We want to reward all fans who come tomorrow to see us on a Tuesday evening but of course to win the group has to be our goal here.”

Dominique Baeyens, Head Coach of Belgium: “I feel frustration. It´s almost the same story like yesterday. We lost 3:0 but we were really close to win one or two sets. Again we didn’t do it which is quite hard. I cannot blame any of my players because we have a lot of injuries. We still expected more to reach here and had the dream to go to Tokyo. I feel frustration that it is already over.”
