Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL storm into #CEVCupW quarterfinals
2018 CEV Volleyball Cup - Women

Luxembourg, February 8, 2018. Turkish top favourites Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL overpowered Yamamay e-work BUSTO ARSIZIO (ITA) 3-1 (20-25, 25-18, 25-18, 26-24) to secure a spot amongst the top eight of the #CEVCupW where they will be playing Yenisei KRASNOYARSK of Russia.

•    Yamamay caught a promising start to the match taking the first set by recording five blocks (with three registered by Beatrice Berti) and Valentina Diouf scoring eight points for a 54% success rate in attack.
•    With Maja Ognjenovic and Güldeniz Önal taking to the court, Eczacibasi played much better in the second set. Tijana Bošković scored seven points, including three blocks, in this set.
•    Önal and Bošković contributed to a massive 11-2 lead for the visitors in the third set. The team coached by Marco Aurelio Motta continued to play better than Yamamay and secured their promotion to the next round with another nine points from Boskovic and seven from Rachael Adams.
•    The fourth set had no real meaning and both coaches used it as an opportunity to try some other options and their back-up players.

Marco Mencarelli, coach of Yamamay: “We had many problems with their service and blocks. In the second and third sets there was a bit of discouragement on our part as we realised the superiority of our opponent.”

Marco Aurelio Motta, coach of Eczacibasi: “This was an early final, we knew it would have been a difficult game, but the victory in the first match made us play quieter today. BUSTO ARSIZIO played a great first set, then we started to block and the game changed its course for the better for us.”
