Russia: a weakened Zenit Kazan prevail over Belogorie in one of biggest European classic. Zenit St. Petersburg down Orenburg

A true classic of the Russian but also European volleyball (the two teams won nine CEV Champions League titles combined) between Belgorod and Zenit Kazan went into the favor of the latter.
Zenit Kazan and Belgorod are about to face each other twice in just two days in the 2020/21 Superliga Parimatch regular season.
In the first, valid for Round 9, as expected, the team from the Tatarstan region prevailed in four sets despite playing without two starters, Valentin Golubev and Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth. Partially, it was 25:22, 25:19, 19:25, 25:22.
Maksim Mikhaylov top-scored for the winners, who are still undefeated (9-0) with 20 points, while Artem Volvich set up 4 winning blocks. Aleksey Samoylenko and Italian Gabriele Nelli scored 16 points each for Belogorie, not a 1-4, with the former making 5 blocks and 73 % attack (11/15). Tomorrowโ€™s match between these two teams will be valid for Round 22.
In the other match of the day, with a victory over Neftyanik of 3-0, Zenit Saint Petersburg with 14 points by Viktor Poletaev, went up to third place in the standings.
