Novara was in that same group and they faced the German in the Qfinals? In this case should we say Novara does not deserve to win against Vakifbank because they have only faced weak teams so far??
This isn’t what I was saying at all
You could say they had a “lucky” draw but if they beat Vakifbank then of course they deserve their win. I don’t really agree with your take that there’s no luck in sport but actually there can be a lot: players get injured, referees make bad decisions, someone gets an easy draw, someone scores an ace off the net at an important moment, etc. My point is these things happen all the time and it’s part of the game so people should just accept it.
As you would say, I’m done with this topic.
