In semifinals Győr defeated ÉRD twice, and FTC got also two victories against Dunaújváros, so in the final will again meet the two big rivals on Hungarian stage, FTC and Győr.
Győr is coming to the finals after a big disappointment as the two times CL-trophy winner didn’t managed to qualify to this years MVM Final Four in Budapest, being knocked out by the Macedonian power Vardar Skopje.
