Turkey: Galatasaray destroys defending champions, Halkbank victorious in big match against Spor Toto and the others of Round 1

2 min read

After Saturday’s advance, the Round 1 of 2021/22 Turkish AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi ended yesterday. Two big the big matches. In first, Halkbank’s newcomer, who arrived just a couple of days ago, Božidar Vučićević, led them to a four-set triumph against Spor Toto despite he entered the court only in last two sets. Serbian tallied 11 points and 53% in attack in the big match against the Cup holders, while Mustafa Koç contributed to a win with four blocks. Incredible the difference in the number of point errors between the 2 teams: 39 for Spor Toto, just 18 for Halkbank!

On the other, Galatasaray HDI Sigorta ran over titleholders Ziraat Bankkart Ankara.
The Ankara side, who took the Super Cup just a few days ago, suffered a clear defeat on the road in Istanbul: 0-3 (20:25, 23:25, 21:25).
The Istanbul team has staked almost everything on the serve, taking 11 aces (compared to 21 errors) targeting above all the Bulgarian Atanasov who ran into a match really to forget: 7 errors in reception and -17% efficiency in attack on 18 balls.
Galatasaray’s captain Burutay Subaşı scored match-high 17 points (56% in attack and 44% efficiency, 2 aces, 1 block), while Puerto Rican Maurice Torres served four aces.
Neither of Ziraat players finished the match in double digits on the scoresheet.

Debut with 3 points for the other 2 favorites of the championship: Fenerbahce destroyed 3-0 Cizre, who paid 0% in the attack of the opposite Coskun, while Arkas Izmir took a clear 3-0 win against the modest Afyon.
The 3-0 of Bursa BBSK on Altekma and the 3-2 of Sorgun on Tokat close the picture.
