Lausanne, Switzerland, June 9, 2018 - Germany host China Tuesday in
Stuttgart in the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League for the 38th time
in history, with the reigning Olympic champions enjoying an exceptional
33-4 lead in the head-to-head. Last time Germany beat China was at the
2009 World Grand Prix, with China making a 7-0 run since then. China
have their place in the finals of the VNL as hosts of the event, 27 June
to 1 July in Nanjing; Germany, on a 5-7 record, are too far behind in
the standings to reach a qualifying spot.
