RUSSIAN CUP M: DÉJÀ VU! Zenit outplayed Dinamo after five sets!

by WoV

Zenit Kazan is becoming a nightmare rival for Dinamo Moscow. The reigning champions of Europe made another huge comeback…



Do you remember the game between Dinamo Moscow and Zenit Kazan in the Russian Championship? Dinamo was leading by 2-0, but then Zenit then turned on their engines and won the game by 3-2!

Well, it happened again! This time in the semi-finals of the Russian Cup!

Once again Dinamo Moscow had 2-0… Ivan Zaytsev had his show. Italian star finished the first set with 5 consecutive points (3 aces) and pushed his team from 20:20 to 25:20!!! Then the same player finished the second set with two aces in row. From 23:23 to 25:23!!! But, even his brilliant performance could not help the Moscow side.

Because, from that moment Zenit Kazan started to dominate! Leon, Mikhailov, Anderson… They were unstoppable and tied the score at 2-2 in sets! Tie-break? Zenit escaped to 14:10 and had 4 match-points! Still, there was a bit more drama in this clash.

Dinamo Moscow scored three points in a row and reduced the margin to 14:13, but then Matt Anderson spiked a true volleyball cannonball and finished the game – 15:13, 3-2 for the Kazan squad!

Zenit will therefore meet Belogorie in the big finals of the Russian Cup.
