Zenit Kazan and Trefl Gdansk played one of the most exciting games in the CEV Champions League over the past few years.

 

The Russian side had to play the golden set to knock out the Polish side.

 “As for the technical faults, we played shamelessly badly, with a huge number of serving errors. I think it is all about psychology. We do not train less, the players are experienced, but the pressure is really high. We showed strong character. Such victories will be beneficial for the team,” says Vladimir Alekno, head coach of Zenit Kazan.

After such a match I want to thank all the mothers of my players, as they gave birth and brought up such good athletes. I think it is the least you can say after such a brilliant performance. I think that today we made a good thing for Volleyball in Poland. We showed to Europe and to the world that Poland has great teams. Of course, my players made great things; they played hard, played with all energy that they have. We showed really good Volleyball. It was an amazing match and I am very happy for the Polish fans from Gdansk that very energetically supported us from the stands. This season we play pretty well in the Champions League. Unfortunately, we are not so good in the national championship of Poland. Champions League matches are very energy-consuming, you play hard against such teams as Zenit KAZAN and you have to go strong in the national championship. That’s challenging. That is the only thing I am not happy about this season. When you have an opportunity to show your level, which we had in match against Zenit, we did it,” says Andrea Anastasi, head coach of Trefl Gdansk.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

CL M: Jastrzębski down Zenit for 2nd time, Russian side needs miracle to go to quarterfinals

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
