Volero Zurich, believe it or not, have suffered the first defeat so far this season!



Before this match, Volero ZÜRICH had lost only one set in all competitions so far this season! It was an impressive streak. But, then came Lokomotiv BAKU

In the first lef of the CEV Champions League Playoff 12, Lokomotiv BAKU defeated Volero at home court in five sets 3-2 (25-21, 22-25, 25-23, 20-25, 16-14). But, Azerbaijani side will have to show the same level in the second leg, if they want to advance to Playoff 12. 

Recall that Lokomotiv didn’t lose any single set at the home court in all competition. Carlo Parisi’s side will have to take at least two sets to stay alive or to take a win and confirm spot in next round.

Anyway, this is a big win of Lokomotiv despite some problems they have in franchise.

Aleksandra Crnčević was the top scorer in Lokomotiv with 22, Aneta Havlickova added 20 while Sonja Newcombe ended match with 14. She scored the match point as well.

On the other side, Rykhliuk had 18, Mammadova 17 and Rabadzhieva 15…
