Zenit vs. Trefl


Zenit aproached the match against Trefl with the greatest possible seriousness. When they do that, their opponents, who ever they are, should not have high hopes.

Trio of the Russian champions LeónMikhlailovAnderson had 50 or more percent of excellent attack in most of the match, while their middle blockers Andrey Ashchev and Aleksandr Gutsalyuk had several important blocks in the moments when Trefl had a slight chance to return into the game.

Mateusz Mika was the main attacking option of Trefl in today’s match (26 attacks overall), but he was spiking out of bounds or was blocked too many times (6 errors overall).

After having 2-0 in sets, Zenit’s coach Vladimir Alekno sent Igor Kobzar and Aleksey Spiridonov on the court instead of Aleksandr Butko and Matt Anderson, but Andrea Anastasi’s side did not have enough strength, or more likely enough will, to confront mixed roster of Zenit.

Top scorers: ZenitWilfredo León 12 points; TreflMateusz Mika 14 points.
