Eczacibasi has secured leadership but remains focused on last prelim game
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Women
Istanbul, Turkey, December 9, 2012. Being one of only three teams with an impeccable record of five wins in as many matches and having already secured its leadership in Pool D, Turkey’s Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL will be pretty relaxed going into its last prelim match coming up this Tuesday against Poland’s Tauron MKS DABROWA GORNICZA.
“We will surely finish the prelims on top of the charts in our group and we are already waiting for the results of the DOL that is scheduled for this coming Thursday in Luxembourg. However, since we want to get a good draw, this match is still important to finish in a good way and we will have to play as focused and concentrated as usual” says head coach Lorenzo Micelli.
“We have displayed a series of good performances in our previous matches and we know that all teams are improving their play as they approach to the deciding stage of the competition. So we have to be ready to step up as well and stretch that momentum also to the knock-out stage” adds team captain Esra Gümüs.
Tauron MKS DABROWA GORNICZA still has a chance to make it to the Playoffs 12 since it is currently ranked third in the group with six points, one less than Azerrail BAKU that will play its last match in Germany against DRESDNER SC.
