Fenerbahce Grundig claims ticket to 16th finals after home victory over Politechnika
2014 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Men

Istanbul, Turkey, November 28, 2013. After their away straight victory in Poland, Turkey’s Fenerbahce Grundig ISTANBUL edged once more Politechnika WARSZAWSKA 3:1 (25-18, 31-33, 25-17, and 25-18) to play Ukraine’s Lokomotiv KHARKIV in the 1/16 finals of the 2014 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup – Men.
The start of the game was very close and either team could break away in the score. Fenerbahce eventually found their rhythm well paced by Ivan Miljkovic and Felipe Fonteles; the head coach of Politechnika, Jakub Bednaruk, received a yellow card for his protests against the decisions made by the referees and Fenerbahce comfortably claimed the opening set with the score of 25-18.  
The guests from Poland set the pace of the game in the second set especially with their strong defense; Adrian Gontariu exploited every single gap in the block and defense of Fenerbahce to score a few points and the set came to a close only after a dramatic ending (31-33).  
The third set saw both teams perform strong especially in attack but Politechnika received a red card to have Fenerbahce 7:4 up shortly before the first technical time-out. After the break, the home team dictated the tempo of the game with the spikes killed by Miljkovic and Leonel Marshall and easily wrapped it up at 25-17.
Fenerbahce dominated the game from the start up to the end of the fourth set; Politechnika fought bravely but could not stand the quality showed by the local heroes who finished their job at 25-18 for a 3-1 victory to delight some 500 fans in attendance at Burhan Felek Volleyball Hall and to get their ticket to the next round.
