At 16:00 exactly, with over 9,000 spectators in the Max-Schmeling-Halle,
it was game on

And it was Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA who got off to a flyer,
leading for the complete 1st set through until taking it 25-18

It was the same story in the second set (25-17) with EGONU on fire,
scoring 27 points throughout the match

But back came the Italian Champions Imoco, fighting hard to take the 3rd set to only 14 points

Massimo BARBOLINI re-grouped his squad for the 4th set, knowing the title was on the line

In what was the tightest set of the match (25-22),
Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA won their first European title 3-1

There were tears all over the court, especially from Francesca PICCININI
who took her 7th European Club title

Igor Gorgonzola NOVARA celebrated hard with their fans, who pushed them on the whole way

Whilst Imoco Volley CONEGLIANO thanked their fans, it is three #CLVolleyW
medals in three years but not the gold they came for

After the men's match, NOVARA finally got their hands on the trophy and a prize money cheque of 400,000 EUR
