One of the main favorites to win the title, Slovenia national team, suffered another defeat in the 2018 CEV Men’s Volleyball Golden European League.


The 2017 FIVB World League – Group 2 winners Slovenia suffered the second defeat in as many games in Pool B in the 2018 Golden European League. After losing to The Netherlands in Round 1 by a 3-1, Slovenia were surpassed by the defending champions Ukraine, who prevailed in straight sets, partially 25-23, 25-23, 25-18, in Round 2.

Oleh Plotnytskyi top scored the winning side with 19 points (3 aces, 2 kill blocks). Vasyl Tupchii recorded 73% attack (11/15, 1 error, blocked once). Tonček Štern scored 17 points for Slovenia, while Jan Kozamernik added 4 kill blocks.

In the same pool, Turkey beat The Netherlands in the tie-break, partially 25-23, 21-25, 25-20, 20-25, 15-12. Metin Toy made 21 points for Turkey. Vahit Emre Savaş had 82% attack (9/11). Maarten van Garderen topped the Dutch team with 21 points (3 aces, 3 kill blocks).

Turkey is the only side with a perfect record in Pool B.

Slovakia scored their first win in Pool A. They defeated Sweden at home by a 3-1 (25-23, 25-18, 19-25, 25-16), leaving the team from Scandinavia winless.

Will Lube win battle for Simón? Cruzeiro refuse high-priced offer from SupeLega runners-up!

Re: @Axe
I disagree. These players are worth it and the league may well become the strongest again in the world as it should be. The men's game is so much better than the women's game today and people need to respect that. Reply

ITA M: Perugia find replacement for Zaytsev – Trentino icon Lanza signs!
