This is great volleyball and fantastic for the Italian League (home teams too) Very exciting and high emotion.
USA volleyball has got to be thrilled with the level that Sander and especially Christenson and Russell have elevated to. Home team win this series

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

If Roeselare will win a home game against Vojvodina, forget about Zenit in next stage of competition. Reply

'Russian side needs miracle to go to quarterfinals'

They need what!? They just have to win a match with Halkbank at home, that's all. It does not really look like a miracle... Warsaw will play against Perugia but since they struggle with injuries and now lose against Tours they are about to be out of the competition, same with Roeselare.
