Five things you need to know about the first leg of the Semi-Finals

MUNICH (Germany) - The Semi-Finals of EuroCup Women are shaping up to be a mouth-watering prospect and ahead of the first-leg matchups, we have picked up five things you need to know before the game balls are thrown up.

EuroLeague Women v EuroCup Women  Final guaranteed

The Semi-Finals will see two EuroLeague Women Regular Season competitors go up against each other in the shape of Famila Schio and Nadezhda, while Spar Citylift Girona and BLMA both came from the EuroCup Women Regular Season. That means we are now going to get a Final with a club from each of the respective Regular Seasons.

Deja-vu for Famila Schio and Nadezhda

These two didn't only compete during the EuroLeague Women Regular Season, they were in the same group and so know all about playing against each other. Perhaps a little bizarrely, both games were absolute blowouts, with Nadezhda winning 67-51 in Orenburg, while this same fixture saw Schio inflict an 82-50 hammering on their opponents only a month ago. Perhaps it will be third time lucky for fans hoping for a tight and exciting game?

Is it going to be all about Allie Quigley - again?
