Paola Egonu has been increasingly featured in the news as information circulates that she will not renew her contract with the Turkish team. In this match, she was the standout performer with 16 points scored, eight in each set, and a 50% attack success rate. Gabi, who scored six points, all from attacks with a 38% success rate, was substituted at the end of the second set. Valentina Diouf from LKS Lodz scored the highest number of points in the game with a total of 23.

“First of all, I am very happy because today we met with the kids from the earthquake area. Today, they were our guests and watched the game. Of course, our hearts are with the families who suffered. We came back to Istanbul to play in front of our people. I think it was a great match because Łódź is a good team. Every set was very tight. Now another difficult challenge awaits us,” said head coach of VakifBank Istanbul, Giovanni Guidetti.
