Russia thrash Belgium to vie for 14th European crown

Krakow, Poland, September 2, 2017. Following a five-set showdown between Serbia and Germany, Belgium and Russia were next to play at TAURON Arena in the second semi-final of LOTTO EUROVOLLEY POLAND 2017, thus fighting for a spot in the final and a chance to play for gold on Sunday. The game was much more lopsided than the first semi-final, as Belgium never really got a chance to fight for taking at least one set and Russia rallied to a comprehensive 3-0 victory (25-14, 25-17, 25-17) to keep an immaculate record with no sets lost in the tournament so far. On Sunday, Russia will play Germany at 20:30 CET in the gold medal match – where they will try to seize their 14th European crown (including those won by the former Soviet Union).
