With packed Azoty Arena on their side, players of Chemik Police had a dream opening and escaped to 4:0 very quickly. However, Busto Arsizio obviously needed just a bit of time to accommodate to the whole atmosphere in Szczecin, and Italians managed to tie the score at 8:8. The game was tied until 13:13, when Busto perhaps performed the crucial run in the first set.

Away side used some mistakes of the opponent to take +3 lead at 17:14, and the margin remained the same all the way until 23:20… When Francesca Marcon spiked the ball into the net for 23:21, Polish fans started thinking that their team might make a late comeback… However, Ekaterina Lyobushkina scored a point with powerful spike for 24:21, and then Busto Arsizio finished the set with an ace! The away squad seized the opening set – 25:21!

The second set was almost the same as the first! Once again Chemik had a better opening, and had 11:6 at one moment. However, that lead has not lasted for a long time, as Busto Arsizio tied the game at 17:17, and then even escaped to 19:17 after a strong block on Anna Werblinska! But, Polish side was still not down. On the contrary… Chemik equalized the game at 20:20, then at 21:21, and finally at 22:22… Then, the home side managed to block Valentina Diouf for 23:22! Just a moment after, Francesca Marcon stepped on the rival’s side of the court and it was 24:22 for Chemik – two set points!

However, Valentina Diouf saved Busto! Italian star scored two points in a row and tied the result at 24:24! Malgorzata Glinka-Mogentale brought one more set point to Chemik – 25:24, but the Polish team failed to use it – 25:25. The punishment was inevitable. Ekaterina Lyobushkina was the heroine of the away team. Russian player blocked Anna Werblinska and Busto went in front at 26:25… Lyobushkina used the first set ball! She scored from a counter attack with a powerful spike and the Italian team was two sets in front – 27:25!

By losing the second set, Chemik Police also lost the confidence. While there was completely different situation in Busto. The Italian team went ahead at 8:3, then at 13:6, finally at 16:9… But, then Joanna Wolosz got injured! The starting setter of Busto suffered an ankle injury and had to be replaced. Chemik used that to approach to 17:14! Still, there were no any major comeback in this semi-final.

Helena Havelkova scored for 18:14, and then the same player made an ace for 19:14! While at the score 21:16, Wolosz returned to the game! With the starting setter once again on court, Busto Arsizio regained the big confidence and finished the game – 25:21, 3-0 in sets!
