Zenit Kazan did not have problems against Fakel, so the reigning cup winners scored a straight sets win. Still, the most important thing for the Kazan crew is that Wilfredo Leon has returned on court after missing 3 previous games due to ankle injury.

And the Cuban bomber has returned in style, as he was the top scorer of Zenit on today’s match with 13 points.

On the other side, Fakel simply could not do much, especially because they were without two very important players – Ilya Vlasov and Dmitriy Volkov – who are recovering from injuries.

The second game of the Day 2 was very exciting, while Belogorie Belgorod eventually prevailed over Dinamo Moscow after a tie break.

Belogorie had the match point at 14:13, but then Dinamo scored two points in a row and got in front by 15:14. However, Belogorie managed to tie the score at 15:15, then to retake the lead at 16:15 and finally to finish the match by winning the tie-break 17:15. 

Recall that the top two teams from each group will advance to the semifinals. Zenit Kazan and Lokomotiv Novosibirsk have already secured their tickets for the semis from Group A, while Belogorie have booked their semifinal ticket in Group B.
