Russia: Yugra-Samotlor achieve historic victory over Zenit-Kazan

2 min read

Yugra-Samotlor made an amazing upset in Round 14 of the 2020/21 Russian Superliga Parimatch regular season, as they beat the country’s most titled club Zenit-Kazan with a score of 3-0 (25:23, 25:21, 25:22).
This was the first victory of the Nizhnevartovsk side over Zenit in the history of the Russian Championship and, in previous attempts, they didn’t even manage to take a single point from the Kazan team!
This was only the fifth victory of Yugra-Samotlor in the competition, which put them at ninth place in the standings. Zenit, who remained the leaders despite a defeat today, came to the match without their head coach Vladimir Alekno and Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth (violated the club discipline). The most prolific players on the winning side were Vitaliy Papazov and Stanislav Masliev with 15 points apiece.
Among other results, 3-1 win for a growing Belogorie Belgorod against Yenisey Krasnoyarsk. The top scorer of the match was the young Pavel Tetyukhin, with 21 points with 7 aces. The picture is closed by the almost obvious external victories of Fakel Novy Urengoy against the last in the standings Gazprom Surgut and Lokomotiv Novosibirsk who granted a set to Neftyanik Orenburg.
