Serbia opened the finals in a great way, with a series of 5: 0, kept the advantage from the beginning to the end and won the match with that difference in the end.
Serbia controlled the result from the beginning and soon reached a six-point advantage (7: 1).
Lithuania approached the three-point difference on several occasions, but Serbia then came to a certain advantage again.
The Lithuanians were the closest at the moment when the scoreboard read 13:10, but that rush of the rival was repulsed, and the victory was soon achieved. The most efficient in the ranks of the world champions was Strahinja Stojacic, who scored nine points. Mihailo Vasi scored five, Dejan Majstorovi scored four, while Marko Brankovi scored three.
Among the Lithuanians, Darius Tarvydas scored seven, Ignas Vajtkus five, while Gintautas Matulis and Marius Uzupis scored two each.
