Who will make it to the semi-finals: A. Carraro Imoco Conegliano vs Savino Del Bene Scandicci - #CLVolleyW
CEV champions League Volley 2021

Luxembourg, 3 March 2021. The first match of this CEV Champions League Volley quarter-finals between these two Italian sides, that took place last week, was one of the most balanced and exciting battles we had the opportunity of seeing. If the 5 – set match that lasted 145 minutes is any indication of what we will be seeing later today, then it’s time to find a comfortable seat and enjoy the ride as one of the 4 semi-finalists will be uncovered.

Head to Head

Last week’s match was only the third time that Conegliano and Scandicci have faced each other in the CEV Champions League Volley, and as a testament to the balance mentioned before, all three of these matches ended in 5 sets.

Imoco’s Italian superstar Paola Egonu (38) and Scandicci’s Polish star Magdalena Stysiak (28) were the only players to score more than 15 points in the first match, and their efficiency today might very well turn out to be a deciding factor in who will be going through to the semi-finals.

 

Could Conegliano make it all the way this season?

If A. Carraro Imoco Conegliano wins today it would be the fourth time that they would manage to reach the semi-finals of the Europe’s premiere club competition. Their best result was a runners-up finish in 2016/17 and 2018/19, the last of the two being a loss against fellow Italians, Igor Gorgonzola Novara at the SuperFinals in Berlin, a match in which Paola Egonu was Novara’s outstanding player.

Now, only a couple of seasons later, Conegliano will be looking at Egonu as well to take them to their first trophy in the competition. After being Conegliano’s top scorer last season with 110, before the competition halted, the 23-year-old Italian has been in exceptional form this season as well, managing a team-high 125 points with an incredible 6.94 set ratio, the best overall.

Still a long way to go until the SuperFinals in Verona on 1st May, but Daniele Santarelli will be confident enough that his team can go all the way this season, if they manage to get passed Scandicci tonight.

 

Can a successful campaign get even better for Scandicci?

Savino Del Bene Scandicci started their CEV Champions League Volley season all the way back in the first round of the competition and the only team from those early stages to still be in the running for a semi-final spot. A win today for Massimo Barbolini’s team and a spot among Europe’s elite 4 would be the best performance of the club in the competition, a considerable motivating factor most would say.

If they are to make it through, they will be needing their top player to perform again at the highest of standards, as she has been doing up until now. Magdalena Stysiak is this season’s top scorer with 196 points, having collected 21 aces along the way, at least 5 more than any other player and will most likely be joining the prestigious 200 points club in tonight’s match.
