Schwerin (dpa / mv) - The volleyball players from SSC Palmberg Schwerin will also play internationally next year. The Bundesliga team qualified on Wednesday evening in the second leg at Zeleznicar Lajkovac (Serbia) despite the 2:3 (13:25, 25:23, 22:25, 28:26, 9:15) defeat for the round of 16 in the European CEV Cup . The SSC won the first leg a week ago 3-0 and benefited in the overall standings from the two sets won in the second duel.
With another set win, the SSC would have made the necessary point to progress perfectly, but had to admit defeat to the hostesses again in the third section. In the final phase of the hard-fought fourth round, the SSC kept their nerves and, by equalizing the set again, secured early access to the round of the 16 best clubs. The fact that Lajkovac decided the subsequent tie-break and thus the game for the Serbs no longer had any influence on this.
