This game was extremely important not really for the standings but rather because the main stars of Azerbaijan’s Volleyball – Natalya Mammadova and Polina Rahimova – were testing out their skills while standing on different sides of the net.

Mammadova was finally on a class of her own and she anchored her team to a classy 3:0 win (25-21, 25-14, 25-23) to make sure Rabita ends the regular season on top of the charts. Actually the winners of the 2011 FIVB Club World Champs did not lose any single game since the start of the season, leaving to their opponents only two sets on their way to the Playoffs
The second stage of the Superleague will start in early April and is joined by a total of five teams that will compete in a double round robin that, once completed, will determine the name of this year’s national champions.
