“Even though we have already booked our ticket for the 1/8 finals, we are not going to save energy in the remaining matches” says head coach Rishat Gilyazutdinov.
“It is important to finish first in the group to get a good draw for the next round” he adds.
This past Sunday Dinamo claimed its last match in the national league with a speedy 3:0 (25-19, 25-8, 25-14) to edge Metar CHELYABINSK.
