Manila, Philippines, October 21, 2016 - Defending champions Eczacibasi VitrA Istanbul have already qualified to the semifinals (together with Pomi Casalmaggiore) and hosts PSL - F2 Logistics Manila will finish fourth in Pool A regardless - but the Turkish side do still need one set to mathematically secure pole position heading into the medals round.
Eczacibasi remain undefeated after coming from 1-2 down to survive a five-set scare in the hands of Rexona Sesc Rio de Janeiro Thursday. PSL - F2 Logistics Manila are winless and setless after two matches - though they've shown inspiring fighting spirit in both their defeats.PSL - F2 Logistics
