The previous three meetings between these two clubs have been dominated by the side from Türkiye but not uneventful, winning all three in straight sets. Before the match earlier this season, they also met in the second round of qualification for the 2016/17 Champions League group stage. Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL won both games against Maritza PLOVDIV 3-0 and would go on to win the bronze medal match that season.

“This is a very important match not only for playing the Playoffs, but also for showing our best game. We know our mistakes in the last few games and we worked on them. We also know that we are much stronger with the two newcomers to the team. As always we will try to do our best.”
