Bulgaria showed superb Volleyball right from the start of their game with Greece; actually the early stages of the match did see a very close race before the home heroines showed more composure and the right determination to bring it home at 25-22. Bulgaria got an early lead also in the second set and they did not dissipate it thereby claiming a provisional 2:0 in sets with another 25-22. Their opponents from Greece attempted to change the course of the game in set 3 but they could not achieve their goal. Bulgaria was up by as many as six points at the second technical time-out and did finish it off at 25-17 for their second consecutive win in the tournament.    

In the other match of the day Croatia imposed their pace by claiming the first set of their fixture with Germany (25-22) and though the players mentored by head coach Han Abbing fought bravely in the second, Croatia scored five in a row to claim a 2:0 lead in sets (25-19). Playing under pressure Germany was able to unleash their full potential in the third set helped also by some errors by the Croatian girls (25-23) before a nail-biting race followed in the fourth. The teams played point for point there but Germany showed real mental strength in the final rush to call for the tie-break (25-23). There Croatia evidently felt the pressure and could not keep up with Germany that eventually brought it home at 15-10 for a 3:2 come-from-behind win.
