After two convincing sets, Russia had 2-0 lead and the head coach Vladimir Alekno has decided to rest Tetyukhin and Volkov in the third.

The top scorer in Alekno’s side was Maxim Mikhailov with 16 points, while E. Kliuka and Tetyukhin contributed with 10 points each. In Cuba, Rendon Gonzalez ended game with 20, while Melgarejo Hernandez added 18.
