Greece: Olympiacos first finalist!

After the unespected defeat in Game 1, Olympiacos completes the comeback and, winning 3-0 the decisive Game 3, as expected, becomes the first finalist of the Greek championship, the only one resumed in Europe after outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic. The rearranged Foinikas greets the serie without too many demerits after revealing the reason for the absence of Staroviฤ: the Serbian opposite had to remain on the island of Syros in quarantine because his fiancรฉe had tested positive for the coronavirus.
After the disastrous Game 1, the Czech opposite Finger redeemed himself with 53% efficiency in attack and top scorer of the match with 16 points. The key to victory? The winners dominated in attack (62% vs. 42%) and from the service line: 7 ace and 8 errors against 1 ace and 11 errors.
