At the start of the match, Dinamo took an early lead on the wings of Holt’s blocking and Kruglov’s attack, running away on 3-6 and then on 6-8. Trentino went back on 9-10 through Nemec, but again Kruglov almost alone retained large advantage to Dinamo (10-14, 12-16) which reached its maximum (+5) when Biryukov put an ace on Kaziyski – 13-18. But, Trentino got up again with an error of Kruglov and two blocks of Solé (on Holt and Biryukov) for 19-20. The finish was played point to point. Dinamo closed on 23-25 with an attack of Berezhko.

Trentino tried to react at the start of the second set, but 4-3 lead that was produced after an ace of Kaziyski was turned over quickly from Dinamo to 4-8 thanks to a couple of mistakes in the attack of the hosts and continuity in the blocking of the Russians. Nemec and Solé almost completely recomposed the gap (10-11). Equality came shortly after thanks to an error by Kruglov (12-12). The first real home advantage of the evening came with Nemec’s spiking and Birarelli’s first tempo (15-13). Later it was confirmed by another service point from Kaziyski (17-15). The team led by Stoytchev went into difficulties in receiving and Dinamo took the opportunity to overtake (18-19). The ace of Lanza gave Trentino 21-20. An error of Biryukov was worthy of 23-21. The attack of Birarelli gave 1-1 in sets to home team.

The third set was balanced for a good part of the first half (5-4, 9-9), but then Dinamo accelerated with the serve by Holt and the block of Shcherbinin that were worthy of 12-16 after a counter attack from Kruglov. An error of Berezhko on the net and ace of Birarelli revived the hopes of Trentino (17-19). Moscow team took ahead 1-2 with the point of Biryukov (23-25).

The reaction of Trentino was angry at the opening of the fourth set (5-2). Dinamo went back with the block of Holt (8-8) and then gained the lead thanks to an ace of Grankin (8-9). Dinamo did not give up the lead (15-14, 19-18) and closed on 21-25 with the block by Grankin.
