Shanghai and Beijing secured their spots in the 2017-2018 Chinese men’s volleyball Super League playoff finals by making a sweep of their rivals in the series of the semifinals.



For the first time in the 2017-2018 Super League playoff semifinals, No.1 Shanghai dropped a set against No.4 Sichuan. Nevertheless, the defending champions managed to win the next three, partially 25-18, 25-20, 12-25, 25-21, and advance to the big finals with a 3-0 in the series.

Wang Jingyi was the most efficient player on the winning side as he scored 19 points. Zhang Zhejia added 5 kill blocks. In Sichuan, who once again could not count on the injured Cuban outside hitter Leonardo Leyva, Du Haixiang and Peng Shikun collected 16 points apiece.

No.2 Beijing and No.3 Bayi played the second tie-breaker in three games. And just like in the previous one, in Game 2, the team from the Chinese capital claimed it to win the series by a 3-0.

Jiang Chuan topped Beijing with 24 points, while Gu Jiafeng contributed with 5 kill blocks. Li Liye scored 18 points for Bayi. Xu Jingtao made 5 kill blocks.
