A great win for Pomì Casalmaggiore,
which at its debut
in the Champions League beat Gianni Caprara's Istanbul side 3-2
(22-25, 18-25, 25-13, 27-25, 11-15).
Massimo Barbolini's team triumphed at its
first appearance in the Champions League and at the home of the European and
World champions Eczacibasi Istanbul.
Pomì achieved its victory following an
initial lead of 0-2 and after suffering a comeback by the hosts, who saved
three match points in the fourth set to force the panthers into a tie break.
Following a 3-0 lead by the Turkish side at the start of the fifth set, Tirozzi
took the Pomì team by the hand and pulled them to a final winning score of
15-11. Well done girls!!!!
