Igor Gorgonzola Novara set off their title defense campaign in the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League with an easy victory over pool stage debutants Khimik Yuzhny.



Novara recovered well from losing the recent Italian Super Cup to Imoco Volley Conegliano and trampled over Khimik, the first-ever Ukrainian team in the pool stage of the Champions League, in Pool C. The difference between these two sides was enormous in favor of titleholders: 3-0 (25-17, 25-10. 25-7).

Fully recovered Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian put down 20 points for the winning side, while American Micha Hancock served 5 aces.
