Turkish giants look forward to matchup with Atomic Girls
2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League - Women

Istanbul, Turkey, November 9, 2015. After claiming their home match with Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA of Italy some ten days ago, Turkey’s giants VakifBank ISTANBUL will travel now to Poland to play on Tuesday PGE Atom Trefl SOPOT for the second round of action in Pool B of the 2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women. The gold medallists from the 2011 and 2013 editions of Europe’s most prestigious competition are hoping for more glory to follow this year.

VakifBank have swept five matches in a row in Turkey’s national league to claim first place in the provisional standing and have spent five days in Bursa lately because they had to contest two straight away matches in this city.

Their Italian-born mentor, Giovanni Guidetti, says about the upcoming match with SOPOT: “We have to pay a lot of attention in our match against PGE Atom Trefl SOPOT. They are a very strong team and play really good volleyball. They are especially dangerous when playing at home. When you go and play away in Poland, this is not an easy task for any team. PGE Atom Trefl SOPOT recently claimed their match against one of the best teams in Europe at the moment, Impel WROCLAW. We are preparing for this game very seriously. I think this will be a tough and an entertaining match at the same time.”

Also the setter of the Turkish giants, Naz Aydemir Akyol stressed the difficulty to play at Sopot’s home base and said: “It will not be an easy game for us. We are aware of our opponent’s skills and strength. However, we also have a strong team and feel quite self-confident at this stage. We are still training and working hard to find our rhythm but in every game we are getting better. In Sopot, if we can play our usual game I believe we will not have any problem.”
