Denmark - Netherlands
Germany - France
in the semis. I think Denmark is unstoppable this year especially with Line Kjaersfeld. Would be a surprise to see someone else on top. I hate to admit it but in the other semi-final France seems to be the favourite.

anybody else having problems with the live broadcast?....is there even one??

The stream provided by badmintoneurope.tv stopped because they only covered the semi-final between Denmark and Netherlands. It seems they had some problems with the matches though. Only the MX was uploaded.

Never in doubt from the start really this time around ... thought Netherlands might give them at least a fight but I don't understand the lineup used at all. It's like they gave up beforehand already .

Denmark come full circle to take gold
Vantaa, Finland in 2011 was a sad place to be if you were a Danish player or a fan of Danish badminton. Little did Denmark realise at the time but that 2013 European Junior Team Championships was to be the catalyst for Germany to end the Danish dominance in team events for the following two years.
...This was a different Danish team that arrived in Turkey this week. This was a team that was determined to win and a team that would not settle for anything less than gold. Head coach Jim Laugesen, himself a European Junior champion from 1993, instilled a new sense of belief and determination in his young team. Laugesen led from the front and his young charges delivered with a decisive 3-0 win.
Mixed doubles duo of Mathias Christiansen and Line Kjaersfeldt led the way for the Danes and blew French duo of Kersaudy and Tran off the court in under half an hour. Kjaersfeldt was once again the outstanding player on court and Mathis Christiansen summed up her contribution eloquently. “Line was outstanding today. She is world class and it is a pleasure to be selected to play alongside her”
...French starlet Delphine Lanscac took the opening game in easy fashion before Anna Thea Madsen came back in the second to level the score. The third set was a nail biter and we even had a small object thrown onto the court mid rally which did little to break the concentration of either player. In the end a combined total of 6 matches played this week for Lansac against just three for Madsen was probably the deciding factor and the Danish team stormed the court when Madsen won the crucial point in the third 21-18.
“This is an amazing feeling. To get the winning point for my team is something that I will remember forever. We deserved this win and I think we were the best team and this puts to bed the disappointment from Finland two years ago” said an overjoyed Madsen to Badminton Europe after the final.
