Eczacıbaşı VitrA İstanbul and Antonio Carraro Imoco Conegliano are the first 2 teams that secured a place in the quarterfinals of the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League.



In the all-Turkish derby and also a direct clash for the top spot in Pool A, Eczacıbaşı VitrA İstanbul beat Fenerbahçe Opet İstanbul in the tie-break to maintain the undefeated record in the competition. What is more important, the “Tigers” mathematically secured a place in the quarterfinals, one round before the end, as they have 2 wins more than Fenerbahçe (and 2 points more). Serbian Tijana Bošković made an outstanding output of 35 points for the winning side. American youngster Jordan Thompson tallied 22 points for Fenerbahçe, while Eda Erdem Dündar set up as many as 8 kill blocks. The “Yellow Angels” couldn’t count on Serbian player Brankica Mihajlović, who broke the finger in the training prior to the game.

Apart from Eczacıbaşı, one more team kept the perfect record and a spot in the Playoffs – the Italian Imoco. It took them only 64 minutes to break the resistance of the Hungarian side Vasas Óbuda Budapest, even though their head coach Daniele Santarelli, practically, didn’t use any of the starters in the match.

The all-Russian clash in Pool E between Dinamo Moscow and Uralochka-NTMK Ekaterinburg went into the favor of the club from the capital, so they will face French RC Cannes in the last round for the No.1 and, of course, a berth in the quarterfinals.
