RUS M: Attention – Fakel cause the first defeat of Zenit Kazan!

1341 0

Zenit Kazan have suffered the first defeat in the Russian championship this season!

 

It’s interesting that Fakel managed to beat the team from Kazan twice in the season 2018/2019. The first time was at the Club Men’s World Championship and now in the Russian league.

Since the score between these two sides in this season is 2-1, it means Zenit Kazan have lots of difficulties with Fakel Noviy Urengoy. That’s some sort of message from to the reigning champions, that there are more title contenders in Russia.

Well, in this game, Zenit had everything under control after the first two sets, but in the other three Fakel managed to make a comeback and to win the game.

Maxim Mikhailov was the best scorer of the game with 23 points, while Earvin Ngapeth added 16 points and Matt Anderson 13 points. On the winning side, Artur Udris had 16 points while Egor Kliuka contributed with 14 points and Dmitriy Volkov 12 points.

Belogorie have scored an important victory, beating Zenit SP in four sets. Gordon Perrin led the team from Belgorod with 15 points, while Nemanja Petric and Denis Zemchenok scored 14 points each.

Georg Grozer had 20 points on the other side, Oreol Camejo added 15.

Kuzbass – Dinamo Moscow 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-19)

UFA – Krasnoyarsk 3-1 (23-25, 25-21, 25-21, 25-20)

BRA M: Both foreigners leave Cruzeiro – Sander goes to Russia, Le Roux’s destination unknown

Uriarte is coming to Sada and Otavio too, so they will need probably a new libero and a very good player to replace Sander, Sergio is 40 years old and Sada tried Thiago Brendle but he will be on Sesc next year, so theres a one place for a foreigner player Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply
