A little surprise was the upset, which Austrian club Salzburg did against Dukla Liberec from Czech republic in tie-break. Liberec is second behind Olomouc, but before Prostejov currently in Czech extraleague.
Now there is the match between Eva Yaneva and Samec. I think the team from Slovenia is the favorite.
Kastrioti manage to take 35 points against Besiktas
As expected, that match was another joke, Besiktas by far superior to underdogs from Kosovo. At the same location they will finish it in two days.
Olympiakos will play against Volero on 20/6. Propably beacause volero has to play in world club championship. Now Olympiakos is 3rd in Greek League and will play another game on 18/6 against the 2nd team of the league. Its to early and the 2nd team has easy programme so far but Olympiakos has a very difficult programme.

Dukla LIBEREC - Proton SARATOV
As expected Besiktas ISTANBUL had a rather easy second match too and meets now regretfully Turkish compatriot team AYDIN BBSK in the first main round - so exactly one Turkish team will proceed to second round.
Another early duel of two stronger teams is Volero Le Cannet against Olympiacos Piraeus. The winner is likely to meet Proton Saratov later on, which is playing as expected despite there were some turbulences around them in the last time in Russia near the Caspian Sea...
