The season opening didn't go well for reigning champions and vice-champions! Both lost in the first round of the Turkish championship!



Let’s start from the match Belediye Plevnespor – Arkas Spor! What happened there? Believe it or not, the reigning champions had 2-0 lead, but home team managed to make huge turnaround and to win game by 3-2!

The hero of the match was Oleksandr Statenko, who ended match with 30 points! On the other side, a lot of players of Arkas miss the game. Cokgoz Gokhan had 25 points, while Vigrass added 14!

Recall that Belediye Plevne defeated Arkas for the first time in their history!

The other huge upset happened in Ankara. Home team Halkbank were defeated by Fenerbahçe in, believe it or not, in three sets! The team from Istanbul ended 6-game winning streak of the rival in head to head matches!

Toy Metin was the top scorer in Fener with 18, while Quesque added 14 and Cabral 10. On home side, Dick Kooy finished match with 19 points!
