The first set started better for the home side when they built a little advantage which was held for the whole set. Portugal never took at least temporary lead and Czech Republic won the first set 25:21.
The second set was almost a repeat of the first one. Czech Republic held a two-point advantage from the early stages of the set. Portugal’s many errors made them incapable of truly resisting the home side and they conceded the set with another 25-21.
In the third set the hosts played a relaxed, confident volleyball holding a comfortable lead right from the outset. They quickly closed out the match at 25-16 in the final set.
