CEV Cup Quarter Finals - Thurs 6th Jan

On Thursday night the 1st leg of the CEV Cup Quarter Finals will be played and two GB players will be involved.

Team Menorca

Janine Sandell’s Menorca will be at home to Rote Raben Vilsbiburg, currently sitting 3rd in the German Bundesliga & led by Argentine Guillermo Gallardo. The German team will offer tough opposition & will be confident following their win over Romanian team Baku in the previous round. Their assets include an average height of 1m90 and current Czech national team player Sarka Barborkova. Menorca are current Spanish League leaders and can be confident in front of a home crowd but know that they will have to be on their game to win.

Team Koniz

In Turkey, Maria Bertelli’s VBC Koniz will be taking on Besiktas Istanbul. This will be a tough challenge for the Swiss team as Besiktas are a very strong team, beating Serbian team in the previous round and currently sitting 6th in the Turkish premier league. One player they will certainly have to look out for is Natalia Kulikova ex Russian National team player and a powerful outside attacker.
