After a difficult success obtained in five sets against Italy, Russia qualified on Saturday night for the final. Today they will be facing Brazil in the final of the 28th Montreux Volley Masters 2013!

  

Since the beginning of the game, both teams put forward their best play and look how to best exploit weaknesses of their opponents. This was for the greatest pleasure of the spectators, treated with a fast and spectacular volleyball.

The first set was taken away by the Russians who knew how to manage key moments to win the first round on a score of 25-23.

In the second set the advantage was this time for the Italians who, managing a slight advance during the entire set, finally took it 21-25.

While the third set seemed acquired to the Italians (22-17), the Russians showed realism and efficiency to transform the advantage in this semi-final and lead 2-1.

The fourth set speaks for itself, as the squadra azzurra clearly dominated it (25-13)!

The tie-break was thus determining for these two magnificent teams: the Russians quickly took three points beforehand in this decisive set, and beside the talented Valentina Diouf (best scorer of the game with 24 points), the Italians never came back, defeated 15-11 in a last exciting set.

Zaytsev to join Milano in the summer? Club president: “We must carefully evaluate the pros and cons”

Re: @dee jae69 what the actual fuck? You really believe Zenit Kazan can still dominate without Wilfredo Leon? Child, do you know the history of Zenit Kazan before Leon? And do you know that they were just recently thrashed by Belogorie and Petersburg? lmao

I don't get why Sirci should let Zaytsev leave. This is his chance to make Perugia
attract future players to their team. He is Italy's superstar and a true Perugian at birth.

We also have to consider the strength of reception of Russell and Leon together. Zaytsev brings insurance that if the pass can be minimum. There's Zaytsev who can receive as opposite. There's not a lot of opposites that we could consider complete as a player. Zaytsev is one of those rare breeds. Letting him go will be the greatest mistake of Perugia. Reply

Re: @duh

Sirci dreamt about LEON he will do anything to sign him. i think ZAYTSEV might be leaving PERUGIA. and he need to find a club to put him back being OPPOSITE. he is a good being OPEN HITTER but he is deadly being OPPOSITE. ZENIT KAZAN don't need another FOREIGN PLAYERS ZENIT ROSTER can win without LEON. Reply
