In Pool B, Slovenia dominates Croatia and secures Top Spot in EuroVolley Pool Stage!
In a commanding performance, they proved their supremacy by defeating the rivals in just three sets (25:17, 25:18, 25:14) and after only 74 minutes of play.
This victory marked their fourth consecutive win, providing them with an enviable record of 12 points, solidifying their position as the group leaders.
Croatia, in the wake of a victory over Bulgaria, today never entered to the court, also due the absence of their recent hero Marko Sedlacek. Their early resistance in the first two sets was swiftly canceled by the Slovenian force, who then secured the third set by a conspicuous 11-point margin.

In another Pool B match in Varna, Ukraine managed to defeat Finland in a close-fought 5-set duel (25:23, 25:17, 23:25, 24:26, 15:13).
This was their first victory of the tournament, keeping their hopes alive for the next phase.
A win against Spain in their final Pool B match on Tuesday will earn them the last spot. If not, Spain itself will claim it.
Meanwhile, Finland concludes their EuroVolley journey with 1 win and 4 points.
