Chaumont VB 52 were on a verge of making an upset in the 16th finals of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Cup.



Although they can’t be considered underdogs in this year’s CEV Cup, Chaumont VB 52 certainly had this role in a duel of the 16th finals against Lokomotiv Novosibirsk.

Whilst Chaumont barely have a positive win-loss ratio in the French Championship and occupy fourth place in the standings (7-5), Lokomotiv are very dominant in the Russian league with 9-1 which put them on the leading position. This fact was visible in the first leg in Siberia in which the home side swept Chaumont (3-0). In the rematch, the French team took full revenge but have fallen in the Golden Set: 3-0 (25-16, 25-19, 25-20); GS: 12-15.

Lokomotiv went to the eighth-finals of the CEV Cup despite committing as many as 34 unforced errors, 13 more than rivals. Pavel Kruglov and Aleksey Rodichev scored 10 points apiece for Lokomotiv, while Bulgarian martin Atanasov tallied 19 points for Chaumont.
