Crvena Zvezda BEOGRAD v Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA
The match at Ustanova Sportski Centar "Voždovac" BELGRADE had a clear favourite and Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA showed that on the court. After a competitive beginning that lasted up until 8-8, the team powered by charismatic Ebrar Karakurt (10 points in set 1) and Kenia Carcaces Opon (7 points) quickly dominated the game, running away with the score to 16-11.

With Kenia Carcaces Opon on the service line, the team from Novara opened the second set with a 5-0 lead. It visibly discouraged the players of Crvena Zvezda Beograd, who couldn't find their rhythm, struggling a lot in reception (only 22% of positive receptions). Despite the big difference on the scoreboard, the fans gathered at Ustanova Sportski Centar "Voždovac" BELGRADE could enjoy some powerful spikes from the local favourite, Tara Taubner, who tallied 8 points. This digit also belonged to Ebrar Karakurt, who delivered 8 stunning killing spikes.
Igor Gorgonzola Novara opened the third part in great style. But leading 9-2 and then 20-14, the team around the coach Stefano Lavarini lost a bit of their focus. Crvena Zvezda didn't waste their opportunity to show their teeth. They reduced the gap to two points at 22-20 and leveled up the score a few minutes later (23-23) with team efforts. Lavarini immediately called the time out, but Beograd still fought fiercely. Finally, the winning block from Lucia Varela Gomez sealed the deal for Igor Volley Gorgonzola.
Ebrar Karakurt recorded an outstanding performance - she produced 25 points, including 23 kills and 2 blocks. The Turkish opposite was unstoppable and 79% in attack is the best proof.
