2 min read

Olympiacos Olympiacos Piraeus from Greece (3-0 over OK Mladost Brcko from Belarus), Portuguese of Sport Lisboa e Benfica (3-1 over Bigbank Tartu from Estonia) and finnish of VaLePa Sastamala (3-1 over Dutch Draisma Dynamo Apeldoorn) repeat the victories of the first leg and pass the round without too many problems.
Instead, Czechs of CEZ Karlovarsko needs the Golden Set to eliminate CSM Arcada Galati from Romania.

In details, the most interesting face-off within the 1st Round of the 2022 CEV Volleyball Champions League out of those on schedule today was held in the Czech Republic: hosts ČEZ Karlovarsko lost 2-3 to CSM Arcada Galați in Romania in the first leg, but the Jiří Novák’s side took care of drama, beating the rivals with the same score at the home, to win later also the decisive gold set 15-10. Patrik Indra highlighted Karlovarsko with 30 points.
The rematch between Finland’s Ford Levoranta Sastamala (also known as VaLePa) and Dutch Draisma Dynamo Apeldoorn had the potential to be dramatic as the one between Karlovarsko and Arcada, especially when Dynamo took the third set, but, VaLePa players (especially Antti Sakari Mäkinen /25 points/) were not in a mood for a golden set. They took the fourth set by which they upgraded a 3-2 win from the first leg.
