Semi-Final 1: RC CANNES – MC-Carnaghi VILLA CORTESE | 24.03.2012 13:30 CET
Two time Champions League winners RC Cannes take on Final Four debutants MC-Carnaghi VILLA CORTESE in the first match of the weekend. Both teams performed excellently in the PlayOffs 8 as the French team came back from the brink of defeat against Vakifbank TTelekom ISTANBUL, and the Italians knocked out Champions League powerhouse Volley BERGAMO. This one really couldn’t be any closer and both teams will feel they have a realistic chance of making it to the final. It may well depend on which team can cope with the pressure better. Will the experience of Victoria Ravva and Co. make the difference or can the Italians get to their first ever Champions League final?
Semi-Final 2: Fenerbahce Universal ISTANBUL – Dinamo KAZAN | 24.03.2012 16:30 CET
Dinamo Kazan has the chance to turn Kazan into the 2012 capital of European volleyball this weekend if they can win this tournament. After Zenit KAZAN took the men’s title back to Russia last weekend the city waits in anticipation for the next trophy to arrive. This will not be an easy task however as Fenerbahce Universal ISTANBUL stands between them and a place in the final. This is the third time in a row that the team from the Turkish capital has made it to the Final Four and the silver medalists from 2010 will be hoping that their fourth Final Four will finally bring them that much sought-after gold medal. Can Dinamo bring the women’s trophy back to Kazan to join the men’s, or will Fenerbahce make sure that a Turkish side is in the final for a third year running?
