Azerrail got back on track in the second set (8:3) with Sara Anzanello and Megan Hodge standing out with their blocks while Manon Flier contributed especially from the serving line, so that BAKU comfortably drew level in the set count (25-12).
The third set was a close run where Azerrail – especially helped by Flier – moved to the front right before the final rush and could seal the provisional 2:1 (25-20).
Azerrail scored eight consecutive points to claim the deciding break in set 4 (14:5) and did not slow the pace down up to the final 25-17 and 3:1 whereby it confirms its second place in the group.
