Zenit Kazan, who secured national title two rounds ago, are saving energy for Final Four of the Champions League, but they are still untouchable in Russia.




Zenit went to the match of penultimate round of the Russian Superliga with only nine players, but without a complete line-up – Anderson, Butko, Leon, Ashchev, Gutsalyuk, Verbov and Mikhailov! All of them remained in Kazan along with the coach Vladimir Alekno, but nevertheless, Zenit beat Yenisei Krasnoyarsk 3-1 (25-21, 23-25, 25-18, 25-12).

In the absence of star players, three members of Zenit’s Volleyball Academy took their place in roster – setter Laurent Alekno (son of a coach Vladimir Alekno), receiver Denis Shenkel and opposite Arseniy Sarlybaev.

Zenit will play the final match in the Russian Championship, against Belogorie Belgorod, on April 12, after which they will travel to Kraków, Poland, to participate at the F4 of the CEV Champions League.

Dinamo Moscow made another step towards claiming silver medal. The team from Russia’s capital defeated Ural Ufa on road 3-1. Dmitriy Shcherbinin had 16 points for Dinamo. Egor Feoktistov scored 15 for Ural.
