Zenit Saint Petersburg almost squandered their entire effort invested in a win against VC Greenyerd Maaseik in the 1st leg of the 2021 Men’s Volleyball CEV Cup semifinals.


Even though they confidently beat Belgium’s Maaseik in the 1st leg of the 2021 Men’s Volleyball CEV Cup semifinals, Russia’s Zenit Saint Petersburg put their promotion to the final in jeopardy with the performance in the rematch. They got swept by the rivals (3-0: 25-23, 25-17, 25-19) and were forced to seek progression in the Golden Set, which was highly dramatic and ended with an 18-16 for Zenit.

Ivan Podrebinkin stood out on the Russian side with 16 points. Egor Kliuka had 70 % reception (6 digs, 37 % excellent) even though as many as 46 attacks of the players of the opposing team went straight at him. Jolan Cox scored 16 points for Maaseik, while the Dutchman Jelte Maan served 5 aces.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
