Turkey beat Azerbaijan to reach women's volleyball final

Turkey survive a five-set thriller against Azerbaijan to reach the final of the women's volleyball at the European Games in Baku.

Turkey have claimed a place in the final of the women's volleyball competition at the European Games in Baku, beating host nation Azerbaijan in a closely-fought semi-final.

The home side came from a set down early on as they were watched by President Ilham Aliyev at Crystal Hall, before coming from behind again in the fourth to force a deciding fifth.

Turkey were too strong though, with top scorer Neriman Oszoy helping them close out a 15-11 triumph in the final set to progress to the gold-medal match.

Turkey will take on Poland for the top spot on the rostrum on Saturday, while Azerbaijan face Serbia for the bronze.
