Allianz Powervolley Milano defeated Halkbank Ankara in the 1st leg of the 2021 CEV Men’s Volleyball Challenge Cup semifinals easier than expected.


Italy’s Milano downed Turkey’s Halkbank on the road in the 1st leg of the 2021 Men’s Challenge Cup semifinals: 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 18-25, 13-25). The result in Turkey, which was achieved easier than expected, now puts SuperLega side in a better position in regard to the advancement to the final compared to their rivals.

Slovenian Tine Urnaut top-scored Milano with 19 points just as Cuban Fernando Hernández tallied on the losing side.

Ziraat Bankası SK Ankara have surprisingly fallen to VK Lvi Praha in the Czech Republic. The Turkish team was far from the play that brought them a long streak of victories in the home league, losing in straight sets today.

Slovenian Matej Mihajlovic stood out on the winning side with 22 points (including 6 aces) through 70 % attack (16/23).
