Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul will challenge Imoco Volley Conegliano in the final of the 2019 FIVB Women’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Shaoxing, China.


The second Italian-Turkish semifinal clash in the 2019 Club World Championship ended in the tie-break, too.

The Italian team has surrendered to the attacks of the 2019 EuroVolley MVP Tijana Bošković. Serbian opposite hitter poured in 31 points. Eczacıbaşı had another mighty weapon today – block. They made as many as 20 kill blocks of which Beyza Arıcı made 6. Bošković’s compatriot Jovana Brakočević top-scored for Novara with 26 points, while Cristina Chirichella set up 5 kill blocks.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
