Russia’s Zenit Saint Petersburg victoriously closed the tournament of the 2021 Men’s CEV Cup held in Pazardzhik (Bulgaria) and, with wins in the eight-finals (3-1 vs hosts Hebar Pazardzhik, yesterday) and in the quarterfinals against Czech’s VK Dukla Liberec (3-0, today), advanced to the semifinals.

Despite achieving a clear victory, the team coached by Finnish Tuomas Sammelvuo faced certain problems in the first and third set. Partially, it was 26-24, 25-14, and 25-22. Viktor Poletaev top-scored Zenit with 15 points, including 4 blocks. Egor Kliuka had 70 % reception (57 % excellent).

Russia’s Dinamo Moscow and Romania’s C.S.M. Arcada Galați downed Serbia’s OK Vojvodina Seme Novi Sad and Dutch Amysoft Lycurgus Groningen respectively in the tournament in Moscow to complete the quarterfinal lineup. Actually, they will face each other for a progression to the top four.
