VakıfBank opens CL season with home game

VakifBank Women's Volleyball Team, which is the winner of four CEV Champions League titles with two consecutive titles, is opening Champions League season at home. The first match in the group will be played against Stuttgart at 19:00 at the VakıfBank Spor Sarayı. The Yellow-Blacks will face Allianz MTV Stuttgart, Maritza Plovdiv and Beziers in Group A. 

VakifBank head coach Giovanni Guidetti, who stated that they are in very good condition as a team said, “Our team is in a good condition. I like the way we played the last two matches. We are improving and we are trying some new things that we want to put slowly in every match. We are very excited to start Champions League this year and we are looking forward to play against Stuttgart. They did an amazing thing for qualifying for this group. After losing in Romania they won 4 sets in a row including the golden set against Alba Blaj. That means they are a strong team with a great character and great fighting spirit. I like every German team that plays with great discipline and good organization of block and defense. So I am looking forward to not an easy match and I am excited to start Champions League.”

VakifBank Captain Melis Gurkaynak stated that It is a great honor for us to start this season as the champion of the Champions League twice in a row. Stuttgart passed a really hard qualification round, defeating its opponent on the golden set. We are aware that we will play with a very strong and competitive team. I hope we can make a good start with this game”
