CL W: Monster display of Paola Egonu to destroy Vakifbank in straight sets

3614 3

Paola Egonu shined in the most important game so far this season, leading Novara to the win over the reigning champions Vakifbank in the CEV Champions League semifinals.


Even though this is the semifinals of the Champions League, the win of 3-0 against Vakifbank in Turkey can be described as a surprise.

In this game, Vafkibank didn’t have a solution for one player – the Italian star Paola Egonu. She has shined in this game, scoring 30 points in just three sets. The whole team of Novara played at a really high level, while Guidetti’s side was not simply in the mood.

Knowing the Italian expert, it’s not over yet. He will prepare the team for the final battle in Italy. We will see the outcome.

However, Novara have a huge advantage now. If they win two sets, they will claim the ticket for Berlin.

Women’s CEV Champions League, semifinals:

Imoco Conegliano – Fenerbahce 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 26-24)

Vakifbank – Novara 0-3 (17-25, 25-27, 15-25)

Lol. What statistics, Kelsey Robinson attacked 12 times and 0%. For 3 sets 0 points! Sloetjes attacked 18 times, 4 balls finished. As you can see, they should leave Vakifbank. Paola Egonu show!

Ravena has much better chemistry. Vakif and Ezcibasi are ruled this year and it wont pass 'big money for stars'. Kim, Zhu... they kill the play. See Italians. There isnt just Black Mamba, but also block was great, setter better and second opposite as well. Thats why they were in Finale in Japan. Turks need clearing of some wannabe stars and Motta should leave too, but they invest a lot in sport from few years back, problem is just Turks cant win, they need other. Similar to basketball where Fener is on top. I think Vakif is done with this team. In 2020 Fener might be placed on top. If Vargas wont do so many mistakes i see them in Ravena-Fener filane.

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply
