Favorites were dominant on the second day of the pool stage of the 2021 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League.



All favorites recorded wins in Round 2 of the pool stage, showing clear dominance over their rivals, which in practice means they didn’t drop a single set.

It was expected that Turkey’s Fenerbahçe HDI İstanbul will provide much stronger resistance to Pool A hosts Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle but the Polish side showed no mercy. Partially it was 25-21, 25-20, and 25-13. Łukasz Kaczmarek and Aleksander Śliwka scored 10 points apiece on the winning side, who are at 2-0.

In the same pool, in the match against Poland’s PGE Skra Bełchatów, Belgium’s Lindemans Aalst experienced the same fate as Fenerbahçe.

Maksim Mikhaylov (14 points /4 aces/) highlighted Russia’s Zenit Kazan against Germany’s Berlin Recycling Volleys in Pool C in their inaugural match in the competition this season.

Italy’s Cucine Lube Civitanova (Osmany Juantorena 21 points) stormed past France’s Tour VB in Pool B and noted their third victory, counting the one by a forfeit against Turkey’s Arkas İzmir.
