Rabita BAKU hosts PROSTEJOV to finish prelims with immaculate record
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Women
Baku, Azerbaijan, December 7, 2012. The silver medalists from the 2012 FIVB Club World Championships of Rabita BAKU scored this past Wednesday their fifth consecutive win in the prelims of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League by besting AsystelCarnaghi VILLA CORTESE of Italy. With this result Rabita tops the charts of Pool B with maximum – 15 – points after five rounds of play and on Tuesday will finish off its campaign by hosting Agel PROSTEJOV of the Czech Republic.
Rabita had claimed the previous clash in straight sets to open the season and the group is very motivated to finish the prelims with a perfect record thereby delighting the home crowd that will be getting together at “Sarhadchi Olympic Centre” in Azerbaijan’s capital city.
“I am very happy that we top the charts of the group with a perfect record” says team captain Mira Golubovic. “I hope we’ll prolong our positive streak also next week as we want to make it to the next stage of the competition with the right boost of confidence”.
Waiting for the results of the DOL scheduled for next Thursday in Luxembourg, head coach Marcello Abbondanza adds: “We are improving match after match and this makes me really happy. Our goal remains to display our potential and quality to make it to the top. This team has a great potential and I think it is time to unleash it fully” he says after edging this past week the club, VILLA CORTESE, that he was mentoring last year as the final four tournament had taken place in Baku.
