Statements after the matches:
Sergey Grankin, team captain of Dinamo MOSCOW, said: “The atmosphere was good here. The first set was tough for us. The hosts forced us to make mistakes by using their powerful attacks. However, we came back and it always feels good to win away from home.”
“We played the first two sets pretty well and consistently, but those players who performed in the third set simply lacked concentration,” commented the always demanding head coach of Zenit KAZAN, Vladimir Alekno.
Sam Deroo , star player of Zaksa KEDZIERZYN-KOZLE said: “We are happy to finish this game in three sets, since we’re a little tired after a very busy month of December. But we have a lot of power in the team and one of the best setters in the world. So we could make the difference in the key moments, which was necessary, since MAASEIK played a very decent game.”
