BURSA BBSK do what they need and will now face Olympiacos PIRAEUS in Final
2017 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Women

Bursa, Turkey, April 2, 2017.  With the score in the first match being 3-1 to the Turkish side in Germany, BURSA BBSK hosted SSC Palmberg SCHWERIN knowing that they only needed to win two sets in the re-match to avoid the lottery of a Golden Set and guarantee their place in the Final.

BURSA BBSK started well playing at a fast tempo and won the first set 25-23. The second set started tense as both teams knew what could be at stake. It was 8-7 at the first technical time-out, but from here the home team extended their lead and ended up winning the second set 25-17 and from that moment knew they would play in the final. 

From here, both teams made some changes, with BURSA BBSK in particular choosing to play with some of their younger players and ended up losing the third set 25-18, and the fourth set 25-16.

The fifth set tie-break was close, but the already qualified BURSA BBSK lost out in the end 16-14. Despite that they celebrated being in the final after the match and their focus now turns to the Finals scheduled for later this month.
