479 0

Stuttgart – Alba Blaj game was super exciting as the German side reduced the lead of the rival from the first game and forced the golden set.


They were much more dominant in the golden set, taking it 15-7 and advancing to the group stage. It was a disappointing display for the team that played in the finals of the previous edition of the Champions League.

"I would like to congratulate all my 13 players, my staff, the management, the sponsors, the fans... This is a victory we all achieved together. We delivered the perfect game. Everybody was enjoying watching Volleyball tonight. And I am speechless, I have nothing to say. I must enjoy the moment," says Ioannis Athanasopoulos, coach of Allianz MTV STUTTGART.

"Congratulations to Allianz MTV STUTTGART! For me, this is a disaster. I do not have anything else to say," says Darko Zakoc, coach of CSM Volei Alba BLAJ.

Budowlani have scored the victory even in the second game against Mulhouse, to claim the spot in the group stage.

Results of the third round, second leg:

Stuttgart – Alba Blaj 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-11)

Mulhouse – Budowlani 2-3 (25-23, 23-25, 25-16, 18-25, 11-15)
