“The first leg’s match was highly-fought, and there were plenty of overturns, but it has given us a result that allows us to go on with the race to the qualifications and gives us a few more chances. We will have to play a tough game to prevail over a very close team that always plays powerful volleyball and never drops below a certain level. We will give everything because we want to continue our European run.”

All Semi-Finalists of the #CLVolleyM are known! JASTRZEBSKI Wegiel, Sir Sicoma Monini PERUGIA, and Halkbank ANKARA qualified on Wednesday and today Grupa Azoty KĘDZIERZYN-KOŹLE joined the big four.

Volleyball fans had an opportunity to enjoy the real thriller, as well as the big crowd in Trento. Tonight was the fourth match of the season between the two teams, the sixth in the last 24 months, and the 14th in total in the history of the two clubs. The tally now stands in a perfect tie: 7-7.

In the first set, Trentino took the initiative and went into the early lead (8-4) but soon enough Zaksa closed onto them (10-9). But this wasn’t enough. Zaksa was either just a little behind or they equalized with Trentino, but they never went in the lead in this set. Trentino closed the first set by 25-19 and with two aces written in their records.

The second set was a whole different story. It was a typical cat-and-mouse type of play where they were chasing each other for the score. And for reaching the Semi-Finals… Trentino managed to “get away” from Zaksa (10-6 and 17-11) but then a plot twist! Zaksa turned over the result and equalized the whole match, again (22-22)! The Polish team took the well-deserved set win by 23-25.

The third set definitely wasn’t for the faint of heart. Although it began calmly with a few points difference, soon enough it turned into a real thriller. It was played completely point-by-point (from 15-14) up until the very end. With a play like this, they soon reached 25 points and there was still no winner. So they continued playing. A couple of times Trentino had a chance to take the set advantage, and a couple of times Zaksa but in the end, the Polish guys managed to turn everything around and locked another set by 27-29.

Trentino knew that they had to win the fourth set if they wanted to have any chances of going through to do the Semi-Finals and they used that motivation in this set. Although they were quite equal with Zaksa, they took that strength and won the fourth set by 25-21.

The fifth set was the last chance for Trentino, in order to go to the Golden set and a last chance for Zaksa to put an end to the whole match and avoid the Golden set. But, Trentino did manage to take a win in the fifth set (15-12) and a Golden set was required. And after the 15 points the winner was Zaksa and they are advancing through to the Semi-Finals of the #CLVolleyM!

The MVP of the match was Grupa Azoty Kedzierzyn-Kozle opposite Lukasz Kaczmarek, author of 27 points with 50 percent, one ace, and three blocks. On the other side, Kaziyski was the best scorer scoring one more point with three aces and a block.

For the third season in a row, Zaksa has thus qualified for the semifinals of the CEV Champions League and in late March Perugia will be able to play its chances to gain access to a new Final, in case the third consecutive one.
