Round of 16 of 2023 Asian Volleyball Championship in Urmia, Iran, without upsets.
To progress to the next stage of the competition are in fact the 6 teams who win the respective Pools in first phase, even if South Korea and China won only at tie break.
The first one, South Korea, had to fight to make a comeback after the 1-2 against a very combative Indonesia, even saving a match point, 13-14, before winning the game.
Great game also for India before succumbing against China, leveling the score twice to collapse only at 15-13 of the decisive fifth set.

On the other games, all easy for the big favorites Iran and Japan, who progress directly to the semifinals after destroying in three sets Pakistan and Bahrein, respectively.
The other four qualified will face each others in quarterfinals, including Qatar, who emerged victorious in three sets after the easy clash against Thailand, and Taipei, who easily down Iraq.
