Novara have made a huge victory last night, beating Vakifbank in Turkey in the CEV Champions League semifinal first game.

 

The match ended in three sets, which is a huge surprise for all volleyball fans.

I am really happy with the victory and proud of my team. They won one unbelievable match. It’s time to celebrate this victory, but this is only one good step. In Italy, we will have a different and much more difficult match, because Vakifbank is probably the strongest team in the world. So, now we showed that we can play and we can win. But we are expecting a very difficult game in Italy,” says Massimo Barbolini, head coach of Novara.

I knew it before, they are a strong team and very complete. To play against them you need to be very, very, good because to be just good is not enough. Today we learned the lesson. There is not that much time until the rematch. We will try to do our best to give at least a better show to the volleyball fans,” says Giovanni Guidetti, the head coach of Vakifbank.
