South America and Europe champions clash in Manila


Manila, Philippines, October 19, 2016 - South American champions Rexona Sesc Rio de Janeiero meet European champions Pomi Casalmaggiore in a highly decisive match in the race for a ticket to the semifinals of the 2016 FIVB Women's Club World Championship in Manila.

Rexona Sesc Rio opened their campaign with a solid 3-0 win over hosts PSL - F2 Logistics Manila and a second victory today would be huge leap in the right direction.

On the other hand, Pomi are with the backs to the wall, after a disappointing performance on the opening day and a straight-set defeat to defending world champions Eczacibasi VitrA Istanbul.
