Vakifbank Eczacibasi have taken the lead in the finals of the Turkish Volleyball elite women’s league.


It was a super-exciting game between these two sides as the championship title will rate the season of both teams.

Eczacibasi have managed to win the game after taking an amazing tie-break 15-12 against Vakifbank.

It was also a battle between Tijana Boskovic, who ended the game with 35 points, and Zhu Ting who scored 27 for Vakifbank. Kim Yeon Koung contributed with 19 in Eczacibasi.

Who wins the series, the season for that team will be considered as a successful one since these two teams didn’t manage to advance to the finals of the Champions League.

Actually, Eczacibasi have already won two trophies in this season (Turkish Super Cup and national cup) and they want to add the third to their trophy room.

The Turkish Women’s Volleyball league, finals:

Vakifbank – Eczacibasi 2-3 (25-23, 17-25, 19-25, 25-18, 12-15)

Third place game:

Galatasaray – Fenerbahce 0-3 (17-25, 20-25, 13-25)

Probably Vakif will be from the top in 2018 to the bottom in 2019. Tijana will beat Zhu. Nice to see Beyza back. Vakif should but Rahimova, waive to Zhu and Ebrar. Need some good players.

No one is helping Zhu in attacks except middle blockers. Sloetjes and Robinson are underachieving. Vakifbank has better middle players, Eczacibasi has better outside hitters. If Vakifbank can find one outside hitter to help Zhu, then they can beat Eczacibasi, otherwise Boskovic, Kim and Larsson will score somehow.

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply

I would have to agree here. Leal is a huge addition to a very talented squad. They have been a force all tourney long.
But I'm going to go with my gut instead of my head.
