Belgium took a 8-4 lead an doubled to 16-8 in the first set relying on their by far better blocking led by Jasmien Brebauw and Maud Catry. The rest of the set maintained the same course and Belgium won 25-14.

The attacks of Carolina Carranza and Xitlali Herrera gave Mexico an 8-3 advantage in the second set, but the Belgian blocking reappeared to produce a tie at 10-all and eventually a 16-13 lead. The Europeans won 25-18 with Jolien Wittock hammering thunderous spikes.

The third set was more of the same with Belgium leading 8-7 and 16-11 at the pauses and the combination of Wittock and Adeline Lemey proved to be lethal sending her side to a 25-17 success.
