Cev Cup: Quarterfinals lineup completed. Zenit St. Petersburg first team to secure place in semifinals

Zenit Saint Petersburg is the first team to secure a place in the semifinals of the 2021 Volleyball CEV Cup.
Russiaโ€™s side victoriously closed the tournament of the competition held in Pazardzhik (Bulgaria) and, with wins in the eight-finals (3-1 vs hosts Hebar Pazardzhik, yesterday) and in the quarterfinals against Czechโ€™s VK Dukla Liberec (3-0, today), advanced to the semifinals. Despite achieving a clear victory, the team coached by Finnish Tuomas Sammelvuo faced certain problems in the first and third set. Partially, it was 26:24, 25:14, and 25:22. Viktor Poletaev was the top scorer for the winners with 15 points, including 4 blocks, while Egor Kliuka had 70 % reception (57 % excellent).

Russiaโ€™s Dinamo Moscow and Romaniaโ€™s C.S.M. Arcada Galaศ›i downed Serbiaโ€™s OK Vojvodina Seme Novi Sad and Dutch Amysoft Lycurgus Groningen respectively in the tournament in Moscow to complete the quarterfinal lineup. Actually, they will face each other for a progression to the top four.
