Firstly, Giovanni Guidetti’s side took the lead by taking the first set 25-18. In another two sets, the Yellow Angels managed to take over the advantage and to get a chance to win the fourth and to win the game.

However, Vakifbank prevented such a scenario, by taking the fourth set 25-21.

In the tie-break, it seemed the Yellow Angels had everything under control, but at the 13-11 result for the home team, Vakifbank answered back with a 3-0 scoring run, creating the first match point. Afterwards, they created another one and won the game 3-2.

Zhu Ting had a great display, scoring 30 points, while Lonneke Sloetjes added 18. On the other side, Melissa Vargas had 29 and Samantha Bricio 26. Milena Rasic has missed the game…

Besiktas have also scored an important victory, defeating Galatasaray away in the tie-break.

Turkish Airlines had a good game away against Halkbank. They smashed them in straight sets 25-23, 25-21, 25-17. Aneta Hvalickova led the winning side with 16 points, Stephanie Enright had 11, while the middle blocker Hristina Ruseva scored 10 (4 blocks)
