Let’s start off by previewing the France team first.
France Women’s Volleyball Team Preview
Although France has a pretty strong Men’s Volleyball team which is ranked 4th and won a gold in the 2020 Olympics, the women’s volleyball team is not as competitive.
France’s women’s volleyball team is currently ranked 33rd by FIVB. France’s women’s volleyball team has not qualified for the women’s volleyball World Cup since 1978 and it has never qualified for the Olympics either.
France also has a pretty mediocre performance in the Women’s Volleyball European Championship with their best achievement being qualifying for the quarter finals of the 2013 edition.
France are yet to play their first game in the 2021 Championship. Their first game is against Russia, which is one of the most successful teams in the tournament and at the world stage.
Serbia Women’s Volleyball Team Preview
Serbia on the other hand are quite a successful team. The Serbian Women’s Volleyball team won a silver in the 2016 Olympics and a bronze in the 2020 summer Olympics, are currently the defending world champions after winning the Women’s Volleyball World Championship in 2018 and are the defending champions in the women’s Volleyball European Championship after winning the championship 2 times in row in 2017 and 2019.
This team is stacked with talent.Brankica Mihajlović won the best spiker award in the 2016 Olympics and in the 2017 and 2019 European Championships.
Their captain Maja Ognjenović,won the best setter award in the 2015 and the 2019 European Championships,Stefana Veljković won the best blocker in the 2017 European Championships and Silvija Popović won the best libero award in the 2018 World Championships.
If this wasn’t enough, Serbia has one of the best players in Europe and possibly the best spiker in the world in Tijana Bošković. Tijana is still young at 24 and yet to reach her prime. In Spite of this fact she has a lot of achievements under her belt.
Bošković won the best spiker award in the 2020 Summer Olympics,the MVP and the best opposite award in the 2019 CEV women’s Championship and she was awarded the most valuable player award in the 2018 World Championships apart from the numerous individual awards at club level.
Serbia’s Women’s Volleyball team looks like the team to beat in the 2021 CEV Women’s Championships.
Serbia dominated Bosnia and Herzegovina in its first game in the 2021 championship. Serbia won each set with a score of 25-11,25-18 and 25-14 respectively.
France vs Serbia Women’s Volleyball Predictions and Analysis 2021 European Volleyball Championship
Bookmakers are yet to set odds for the France vs Serbia Women’s Volleyball game at the 2021 Womens Volleyball European Championship because France is set to play Russia before it faces off against Serbia.
It seems highly unlikely that France will be able to beat Serbia considering the massive gap in quality between the two teams. Serbia is stacked with talent in all positions and has been the dominant team in Europe and even the world while France has been pretty mediocre.
We expect Serbia to demolish France in the first three sets and win by a huge margin.
