Russia played horrible 2nd set ... O.o looking at stats Turkey was much better in the 23-25 first set so maybe we should have won that one.
This is not the first time Turkey plays a tb with Russia or even beat them (if they had) Turkey played most of this match without their first 6 even with international debutants. Who seem very clueless at times and some scared to take responsibility. Imo this was the worst match of Turkey in this competition. Russians 3-2 Turkish debutants.
It's almost pathetic to see how bad Russian reception is and how easily they are aced. Only their middle and Voronkova was good today, the rest was really bad.
Personally I think Turkey will beat Russia in the race for Final 6. Any team in VNL (except Argentina) can beat this Russia on a good serving day.
China, Brazil, Serbia, USA, Netherlands, Turkey this year I'm pretty sure. But this 5 will be really tough on TR.
