Russia remain undefeated in Pool C as Bulgaria see off Spanish threat

Kraków, Poland, August 26, 2017. A 3-0 score suggests an easy victory but actually the Slovenians fought ferociously and it is due only to Russian experience that they won the clash of Group C leaders at the TAURON Arena 27-25, 30-28, 25-22.  It was a similar story in the next match with Bulgaria coming through against Spain by the same scoreline after surviving a big scare in the 2nd set.  Russia now top the group and are favourites to go straight through to the Quarter Finals while the places for the Playoffs will be decided when the teams return to the court on Monday.
