The Pink dream continues! Pomi Casalmaggiore are just one step away from taking the European crown after they downed Dinamo Kazan in the 2016 Women’s CEV Champions League Semi-Finals! The home side played an amazing match and made a historic success. Do not forget that this is their very first appearance at the CEV Champions League Final Four!
On the other side, Dinamo Kazan could not do any more, as they played without two major players. Ekaterina Gamova and Evgenia Startseva were not in the roster of the Russian side, allegedly because of the food poisoning.
The German Margareta Kozuch topped scorers of Casalmaggiore with 13 points. The Bulgarian Elitsa Vasileva collected 10 in Dinamo.
