If we don't count the tie-break, the game between Imoco and Vasas in the CEV Champions League was very uncertain.

And we must admit, Vasas girls surprised everyone by playing an amazing game in Italy. Even Imoco were surprised, since they lost the first set. They realized that after losing the first part of the game. 

The head coach Danielle Santarelli had to include Paola Egonu and Kimberly Hill in the starting six for the second set and as of that moment, Imoco started controlling the things on the court. 

However, in the fourth set, when everyone thought that the home team will finish the job in four sets, the away side from Hungary came back and forced the tie-break.

Paola Egonu ended the game as teh best scorer with 28 points, Chiaka Ogbogu added 17 while on other side Maria Kostelanska had 16.

RC Cannes have also scored the win at their Champions League opening campaign. They won the game vs. Maritza Plovdiv at the home court in four sets 3-1 (26-24, 18-25, 25-7, 25-19).
