“We made history in Volleyball. We are focused, aim to dominate and will do our best to win both here at the Final Four and in the Russian league,” said Vladimir Alekno and added:
“These Champions League finals are a great Volleyball party, with two Italian teams, the BR Volleys and Zenit. There will be a lot of fun in the arena.”
The first opponents of Zenit present a very good defensive style of play which, paired with Zenit’s renowned attack power, should make for an interesting game.
“BERLIN play very good Volleyball, they did well in the competition and deserve being here at the finals. We will enjoy this game,” Alekno.
“At the beginning of the season no one would have predicted we could make it to the Finals especially since we were drawn in a very difficult pool. However, we started our journey in the best way with a home victory over Cucine Lube and we finished among the top teams in the League Round, so we had a good draw for the Playoffs. We played a couple of great matches against Dinamo MOSCOW, so at the end of the day I think that we deserve to be here.”
