Resovia gave up this match. The result might have been different if they might just believed in their skills. Congratulations to Kazan!

David that’s the difference between big teams and developing teams like Resovia, it was Zenit’s fifth consecutive final four appearance.if Zenit and Resovia plays 10 times again , zenit will win 9 out of 10

R. March 30, 2015 - 3:03 pm

@BlueRedWhite, where were other big teams? who could beat zenit if not team which qualified to final four? it seems there is zenit and so far finally other teams. and in my opinion the only team who could fight at equal level with this zenit is skra but at good form
