After losing their semifinal matches yesterday, Serbia and Bulgaria slug it out for the bronze medal of the CEV European Championship at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen today.

Dethroned champion Serbia lost to Russia 19–25 26–24 23–25 15–25 while Bulgaria fell prey to Italy 25-19 22-25 15-25 22-25.

The Serbians will once again rely on leading scorer Aleksandar Atanasijevic, who scored 13 points against the Russians.

Milos Nikic is another player to watch after also scoring 13 in their semifinal encounter. Nikola Kovacevic, Marko Ivovic and Marko Podrascanin are the other key players for Serbia.

"Congratulations to Russia on the win and I wish them good luck in the final. Russia played very well in the first set, we played a good second set but we played worse in the fourth set and Russia played a good and consistent match. Tomorrow is a new day where we will go out to win the bronze medal match," Serbia mentor Igor Kolakovic said.

Bulgaria, meanwhile, is determined to bring home a medal this time after falling short in last year's London Olympics and this year's FIVB World League. They finished third in this competition in 2009. 

Scoring machine Tseven Sokolov is the biggest headache for Serbia. The hard-hitting spiker dropped 20 against Italy yesterday.

Todor Aleksiev and Todor Skrimov will help him in the scoring chores.

"Now we have to clear our minds on what happened today and think about how we can win tomorrow's game. A medal is always worth fighting for," said Bulgaria mentor Camillo Placi following their defeat to the Italians.
