On Tuesday evening, SK Zadruga AICH/DOB claimed a hard-fought3:2 (25:21, 25:19, 24:26, 19:25, 15:13) victory in the first of two back-to-back matches with VK Dukla LIBEREC of the Czech Republic. The second encounter will already follow on Wednesday night and decide which team will progress to the 8th Finals of the CEV Volleyball Cup.
“We played really well in the first two sets and started well into the third too, but suddenly the mistakes came and nothing seemed to be working anymore. We only came back in the fifth set. Unfortunately, we regularly have problems to win sets even after leading from the start. Today we needed four match points to get the job done. It is of course a good thing that we won, but we were obviously not hoping for this result; it does not matter, since we are very motivated for tomorrow,” said Martin Micheu, Sports Manager of SK Zadruga AICH/DOB.
Live streaming of the Wednesday’s game will be available on the CEV’s YouTube channel here.
