Lokomotiv downed Zenit-Kazan for the second time this season in the 2020/21 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship.


Lokomotiv achieved a strong-willed victory in the first match of the inaugural Final Six of the Russian Men’s league in Moscow. The Novosibirsk club was 2 sets down against Zenit-Kazan at Pool B opener of the final tournament of the 2020/21 Russian Men’s Superliga Parimatch but managed to completely turn the course of the game and beat Vladimir Alekno’s team for the second time this season: 3-2 (19-25, 23-25, 25-22, 29-27, 15-13).

Dražen Luburić, the Serbian opposite hitter from Lokomotiv, was the most productive player of the match, scoring 33 points (including 6 aces). Maksim Mikhaylov tallied 27 points for Zenit-Kazan.

Being led by Egor Kliuka (22 points, including 4 aces) and Ivan Yakovlev (5 blocks), Zenit Saint Petersburg outplayed Fakel in 4 sets in Pool A in the other match of the opening day. Dmitriy Volkov scored 19 points for the club from Novy Urengoy.

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
