However, Fenerbahce could not find a way to stand the serve of Dan Borota and Tomis cruised to the front (19:16); after a tie at 21, helped by the loud home fans, Tomis wrapped it up at 25-23 for the 2:0.

We played very bad and Tomis deserved this win” commented Fenerbahce head coach Daniele Bagnoli.

We tried our best but it just did not work. Many things will change anyway for the return match in Istanbul” added Miljkovic.

Players and fans did a great job tonight. We knew what we had to do to win this game and this is an extremely important win for our club” said home mentor Radovan Gacic.

We knew we needed a win to remain in contention for a spot in the next round. Fenerbahce is a good team and the return game in Istanbul will be difficult” added Tomis setter Javier Gonzalez.
