Stuttgart prevailed 3-1 over Schwerin in the rematch of all-German quarter-finals of the CEV Volleyball Cup 2022 | Women and, given that the latter suffered a forfeit defeat in the first leg due to being unable to play as a result of corona cases, the Bundesliga vice-champions progressed to the semis.
Tonight, it quickly became clear that the coach Felix Koslowski’s girls couldn’t cope with the task. After all, they returned to training after a forced two-week break, only this Monday.

American Simone Lee top-scored Stuttgart with 26 points.
After the end of the Stuttgart vs Schwerin face-off, there’s only one semi-final slot remained, either for CSM Volei Alba Blaj or Volero Le Cannet (3-0 in the first leg).
