This is already the second time that Uralochka has travelled to Baku in this still very young year. They had come shortly after the New Year’s Eve to play a couple of friendly matches with the Azerbaijani national team that was preparing for the World Champs qualifier where they got to test the likes of Estonia, Israel, and Serbia. These matches helped Azerbaijan win that tournament and get the right to compete at this year’s World Champs in Italy. 

Even though they are fighting for making the Challenge Round of the CEV Volleyball Cup, there is a friendly atmosphere around in Baku for Azerrail and Uralochka have very close ties. Even though the hosts are the underdogs, they still want to play their best in order to seize the day.
