It has been 30 years since Danish capital Copenhagen hosted Champions League match. Gentofte and Belogorie had the honor to break the ice. The hosts suffered heavy defeat 3-0 to Russian side, partially 25-15, 25-18, 25-20.

In only 76 minutes of a play, Belogorie (played 170th match in European Cups) downed Danish title holders.

Young receiver Yaroslav Podlesnykh topped winning team with 18 points while Philip Metin Özarı had 12 in Gentofte.

Skra slightly opened the door of the main stage of the Champions League after confident victory on traditionally tough visit for all clubs, in Thessaloniki 3-0 (25-22, 25-17, 25-20). For the second time this season, Bartosz Kurek started the match for Skra and highlighted with 18 points. Skra coach Philippe Blain decided to leave first opposite Mariusz Wlazły home.
