VakifBank secures top spot with speedy win in Belgrade
2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women

Belgrade, Serbia, January 28, 2015. VakifBank ISTANBUL was too strong for the Serbian rookie Partizan Vizura BEOGRAD and after only three sets confirmed the first place of Pool E in the 2015 CEV DenizBank Champions League – Women.  In front 1000 spectators, the Turkish powerhouse shut out the home side by 3:0 (25-13, 25-11, 25-11) in less than one hour, leaving the team from Belgrade in fourth place and out of contention for a spot in the remainder of the European Cups season.

From the beginning of the match the visitors played on high level and the hosts could not find the right way to counteract.  The Belgrade Sharks tried everything, but VakifBank’s block was just too high.  At the end, the team of Giovani Guidetti scored 16 points by blocking while the Black-and-White had only 26% success rate in attack.

Milena Rasic, middle blocker of the Turkish giant, played in her home country and was more than happy:  “We are happy that we finished our competition in the pool in the lead.  Our goal is to get to the Final Four and I really hope that we will.  Now we are waiting for our next opponent.”

On the other side, Maja Savic thinks that her Partizan Vizura could have played better:  “I really do not know what happened but I think that we could have played better.  I must congratulate VakifBank - they did a great job.  We played as much as we could, but this is certainly a great experience for us, because we are a very young team.  We can be satisfied, because we played in the Champions League.”
