BR Volleys want to use the first match point

The BR Volleys spread confidence before the match point to reach the finals of the German volleyball championship. The team wants to get the missing third semi-final win against SVG Lüneburg in the “Best of Five” playoff series on Wednesday (7:30 p.m.) in the Max-Schmeling-Halle. “We won’t give anything away to Lüneburg and we have enough experience to be able to do that,” said team captain Ruben Schott. In the event of a defeat, the BR Volleys would have to play again in Lüneburg on Friday, and a crucial fifth match would take place in Berlin on April 9th.

In the first two games against Lower Saxony, the Volleys retained the upper hand 3-1. However, outside attacker Schott also came to the realization: “Lüneburg doesn’t make it easy for us.” His teammate Timothee Carle confirms: “Regardless of whether we are ahead by two or three breaks, Lüneburg are always difficult to shake off.” In order to still hold their own , advises the Frenchman: “We must never lose tension.”

If the BR Volleys actually make it to the final for the 13th time in a row, they would face the winner of the second semi-final between the Grizzlys Giesen and VfB Friedrichshafen (playoff score: 1:1). Schott knows that the BR Volleys face another big challenge if they make it to the final: “If we beat Lüneburg, that doesn’t mean that we are automatically German champions.”
