Turkey had won 3-1 the last time these two teams met at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Nations League on June 20.


Back in London 2012 Olympics, Turkey had beaten South Korea 3-2 in the group stages. If Turkey manages to win the semifinal, it will meet the winner of the match between Brazil and the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).

Earlier on Monday, the Turkey women’s volleyball team beat ROC 3-2 to secure the third position in Tokyo 2020 Olympics Pool B.


In the opening Pool B match, Turkey stunned world champions China, before losing to Team USA. But the Sultans bounced back against Argentina with a 3-0 win and secured a place in the quarterfinals.
