The Champions League participants Hypo Tirol and Ach Volley Ljubljana will also enter the competition in the quarter finals.

However, the volleyball fans will only know on February 16 which teams qualify for the semi finals.

The play-offs are organized in a home and away match.

In the case of a 1:1 tie a Golden Set will decide about the qualification.

No chance for Linz-Steg vs. Bratslava

On Wednesday Slavia EU Bratislava clearly defeated ASKÖ Linz-Steg at the Austrian team’s home venue in the MEL Women.

The Slovakians secured a 3:0 (25:17, 25:19, 25:18) victory against the home team who had to play without setter Mandy Bible who fell ill the night before the encounter.

We do not know whether she will recover until Saturday for the duel with SVS Post”, explained Linz-Steg assistant coach Florian Stangl.

Due to the success Bratislava closed up to SVS Post in the ranking.

However, the Slovakian girls have played three games more.
