The powerhouse from Kazan has defeated Fakel in straight sets 25-18, 25-22, 25-13.

The head coach of Zenit Kazan, Aleksey Verbov, uses a wide rotation this season and the match with Fakel confirmed this – he made four substitutions in the squad that won the Russian Cup in the last match in 2021. Fakel did not have one of the key players Omar Kurbanov, who was replaced by Vadim Yutsevich.

Dmitry Volkov was the best scorer with 17 points (74% in the attack).

Lokomotiv Novosibirsk have also started the new year with another victory to stay in race for the top position. They downed Novgorod in straight sets 25-22, 25-20, 25-22.
