Imoco Volley Conegliano repeated an impressive display from the first leg of the 2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Women semifinals against Fenerbahçe Opet İstanbul and are through to the first-ever Super Finals.


The Italian side Imoco outshined Fenerbahçe for the second time in one week to advance to their second-ever Champions League final (the first one was in 2017), but the first-ever final under the new format of the tournament.

The “Panthers“ achieved another straight-set victory against the Turkish Fenerbahçe, this time on the road, partially 25-18, 25-22, 28-26. Imoco cleared their path to the Super Finals in Berlin on May 18 after winning the second set in which they set up as much as eight kill blocks (13 overall)! The third set was played only for the sake of prestige but Imoco still managed to claim it.

The Croatian opposite hitter Samanta Fabris top-scored for Imoco with 17 points while Anna Danesi made six kill blocks. Mexican Samantha Bricio noted 15 points for the “Yellow Angels“. Eda Erdem Dündar set up five kill blocks.

In the Super Finals, Imoco might face another Italian team in case Igor Gorgonzola Novara eliminate VakıfBank İstanbul tomorrow. And they are close to doing so!

2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Women semifinals – 2nd leg:

Fenerbahçe Opet İstanbul - Imoco Volley Conegliano 0-3 (18-25, 22-25, 26-28), 1st leg 0-3

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
