Dinamo Moscow prevailed in the big match of Day 3 of the preliminary stage of the 2020 Russian women’s volleyball Cup against Lokomotiv.


The first match in the 2020 Kubok Rossii didn’t go well for Lokomotiv. On Day 3 of the preliminary stage, more precisely in Zone 1, the Kaliningrad club succumbed to Dinamo Moscow in four sets: 3-1 (28-30, 25-19, 25-19, 25-19).

Taking into account the composition of Zone 1, both teams will almost certainly advance to the next stage of the competition given that four of the five clubs from this zone will have a guaranteed place there. Because of the fact that winning such a big match will add more confidence to players for the continuation of the season, both teams entered the match with the strongest lineups. Nataliya Goncharova top-scored for Dinamo Moscow, who share the top spot in Zone 1 with Leningradka (both with 2-0 and 6 points), with 22 points. Ekaterina Evdokimova tallied 17 points for Lokomotiv.

Uralochka-NTMK and a team that left Superliga, Sakhalin, dominate Zone 2 with a 3-0 record each. What separates these two sides is the number of points they assembled so far: Uralochka-NTMK have 9, Sakhalin have 8.

As for the last tournament, Zone 3, Proton and the second division side Severyanka surprisingly occupy the first two spots in the charts:  3-0 each. Proton have 9 points, Severyanka have 8. The reigning champions of Russia, Dinamo-Ak Bars (formerly known as Dinamo-Kazan) are third with 2-1 and 6 points.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
