Turkey: Fenerbahçe start 2022/23 EfelerLigi by narrowly avoiding getting upset by Cizre

2 min read

The current bronze medalists of the Turkish Championship Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta almost slip on their own court in the opening match of 2022/23 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season.

In their first match, and first match overall of the competition, Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta hosted Cizre Belediyespor, who finished sixth last season.
However, the super favorite Fenerbahçe needed five sets to defeat the rivals, and started the national championship campaign by unexpectedly losing one point (21:25, 25:17, 25:14, 20:25, 15:13).
The winners were top scored by young opposite Kaan Gürbüz, who apparently is, to a surprise to many fans, projected to be the option No. 1 on this position in the team. He ended the game with 22 points, while the French Julien Winkelmuller of Cizre was the match’s most prolific player with 24 points. Bulgarian Svetoslav Ivanov made 80% reception (20 digs, 1 error, 40% perfect).
