Turkey had a brilliant campaign so far in the 2021 Women’s Volleyball  European Championship. They were only 1 of 2 teams that won every set in the group stage of all the 24 teams.

Turkey also had the best points scored to point conceded ratio of any team.

Turkey faced the Czech Republic in the round of 16 and beat them with a convincing 3-1 performance. Turkey were favorites going into the competition and they still look like the team to beat.

22 year old Zehra Gunes has thoroughly impressed during the tournament and even though she isn’t one of the top scorers in the tournament, she has the highest spiker efficiency at 55%. Cansu Ozbay currently ranks as the 9th best setter in the tournament and she could potentially emerge as the best setter in the tournament.

Tuğba Senglou is currently the 7th best server in the championship but has the 5th highest set average so far.

Poland also had a pretty mediocre performance in the FIVB nations league, finishing 11th out of 16th in the 2021 FIVB nations league.

However, they finished above Italy and Serbia in the nations league which can be considered a decent finish.
