Luxembourg Ladies played a strong match against a strong team of Sweden!

from CEV:

On Saturday hosts Estonia and Sweden extended their winning streak at the 2017 women’s EuroVolley first-round qualifier – Pool 1 by defeating Denmark and Luxembourg respectively in three straight sets. On Sunday Sweden and Estonia will lock horns in the tournament ‘final’ to determine who moves on straight to the second stage of the qualification process, which is scheduled to follow in September this year. Denmark will play Luxembourg in the opening match of the last competition day in Tallinn.

Sweden vs. Luxembourg 3-0 (25-19, 25-19, 25-16)

Despite the loss, Luxembourg head coach Detlev Schönberg praised the effort of his team. “I am very proud of my girls, they were fighting all the time and did the best they can do at the moment. Considering that Sweden is one of the strongest teams in the tournament, we did a very good job today,” he said. “I feel that our girls have a great heart like real red lions have, which are the symbol of Luxembourg. They always fight back and never give up. It is a great pleasure to coach such a team,” he added.
Sweden was again steered by Isabelle Haak who recorded as many as 20 points. Betty Hoffmann netted ten points for Luxembourg. “It was a good game for us and I am happy with the victory,” said Sweden head coach Ismo Peltoarvo.
Talking about tomorrow’s decisive match, he hopes that it will deliver an intriguing fight for the top spot in the group. “I know that Estonia is a strong team and they are difficult to beat,” Peltoarvo said.
Before the ‘grand finale’ Denmark and Luxembourg will play for third place in the group. “To beat Denmark, we have to improve a lot of things. We played against them not so long ago and I know that they have a very strong defence. So to beat them we must make one more step forward compared to today’s match,” Luxembourg mentor Schönberg commented.
