Zenit Kazan's trio Mikhailov (19 points), Anderson (16 points) and Ngapeth (15 points) created the first win in the semifinal series against Fakel Noviy Urengoy. The away side was close to tie the score after performing well in the second set, however,  they didn't manage to do it, letting Zenit double the lead in sets. 

In the third, Fakel couldn't do anything to stop the reigning champions and they let them win the first game.

Kuzbass Kemerevo have also scored a 3-0 win over Zenit ST. Petersburg. Even though it was a 3-0 win, the home side had many difficulties, especially in the second and the third set.

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
