The titleholders Kuzbass narrowly avoided a huge upset in Round 10 of the 2019/20 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season and extended the winning streak to six games.


The underdogs Enisey provided a surprisingly tough resistance to the champions Kuzbass in the 10th round of the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch regular season, extending the match to the tie-break but failed to make an upset. It is unknown why the top scorer of the team from Kemerovo, Viktor Poletaev, hasn’t been playing much lately (probably due to injury) but today he wasn’t even in the protocol. Anton Karpukhov tallied 17 points for Kuzbass. Bulgarian Todor Skrimov and Ukrainian Yan Ereshchenko scored 19 points apiece for Enisey. Due to the fact that Lokomotiv also recorded a victory, Kuzbass remained in second place in the charts with 8-1 and 21 points.

Three-time Champions League winners Belogorie continued their poor campaign. They lost to Dinamo Moscow in straight sets, which was their fourth successive defeat, and are now 10th in the standings with 3-6 and 8 points.

Dinamo-Lo stunned Zenit Saint-Petersburg and beat them by a 3-1.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
