Lokomotiv Novosibirsk are close to advancing to the final of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Cup.


In the all-Russian clash, Lokomotiv Novosibirsk recorded a home win against Zenit Saint Petersburg in the first leg of the 2020 CEV Men’s Cup semifinals: 3-1 (25-22, 25-23, 23-25, 25-22). The team from Siberia, the winners of the Russian Championship regular season, justified the role of the favorites in the match that was held behind closed doors due to coronavirus pandemic.

Sergey Savin was Lokomotiv’s most prolific player with 19 points. Ilyas Kurkaev made 5 kill blocks, while Artem Ermakov made 75% reception (16 digs, 56% excellent). German György Grozer put down 25 points for Zenit.

Just like all the matches of European cups, the first leg of the other semifinal between Turkey’s Galatasaray HDI İstanbul and Italy’s Leo Shoes Modena is postponed until further notice.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
