Since both the defending champion as well as the guys from Innsbruck entered the competition only in the play-offs this MEL season has not seen any encounters between the semi-final opponents yet. Nevertheless, Ach Volley and Hypo Tirol are the supposed favorites in the encounters. Should both teams live up to expectations and win their semi-final, the final would be a “remake’ of last season’s final.
