If you have a possibility to watch a replay of this game somewhere, you just have to do it. It was a top volleyball spectacle. Two amazing teams, moves which defines the law of physics, there was even some blood on the court, while one serve ended in a trash can…

But let us focus on the third set, where most of the amazing things happened. Two teams were all tied at 1-1 in sets, but Zenit had a better opening and eventually went ahead at 21:18. But, Dinamo Moscow took the next point, and then Maxwell Holt went on a service line.

He scored two straight aces! In the second one the ball bounced off the hands of Alexey Spiridonov and ended up in a trash can behind the bench of Zenit! But, Spiridonov did not hit only the ball. He accidentally hit Alexey Verbov and cut him just above the eye. The starting libero of Kazan side had to go on bench. It was 21:21 on the scoreboard.
