Yakin Dogu Universitesi will play the second leg of their clash at home, on account of being higher seeded than Galatasaray, at the end of the EuroCup Women Regular Season. In the second Semi-Final, home court advantage goes to EuroCup Women Regular Season participants Bellona AGU, over Hatay, who joined the competition from EuroLeague Women at the Quarter-Final stage.
