The top-seed Ziraat prevailed over no.4 Galatasaray HDI Sigorta in Game 1 after a thrilling 5-set battle. Partially, it was 25:19, 22:25, 26:24, 17:25, and 15:13 for the team from Turkish capital.

On the other semifinal, the 3rd-seed Arkas Spor staged an upset by defeating regular-season vice-champions Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta. The Izmir side won in 4 sets, mostly thanks to the 19-years-old opposite Efe Mandıracı, author of 30 points with 51% in attack, 5 blocks and 3 aces.
