After losing two consecutive finals in previous two years, the third strike was very lucky for the Russian team! 

Lube Civitanova had to surrender only after three sets, even though they had some chances in the first sets – 27-25, 25-22, 25-22. 

The performances of Zenit Kazan were impressive at the Club World Championship! They didn’t lose a set at this competition, beating Shanghai, Personal Bolivar, PGE Skra Belchatow, Sada Cruzeiro and Lube Civitanova. When they do it, they do it in style!

As we got used to it, Wilfredo Leon was the best scorer in Zenit Kazan with 19 points, while Maxim Mikhailov added 12 points. In Lube, Osmany Juantorena had 22 and Sokolov 14.

Finals of the Men’s Club World Championship:

Zenit Kazan – Lube Civitanova 3-0 (27-25, 25-22, 25-22)

Sada Cruzeiro – PGE Skra Belchatow 3-0 (25-19; 25-18; 25-13)
