2 min read

Dinamo Moscow failed to take revenge on Fakel, who became the only team that managed to beat the club from the Russian capital in the national championship this season!
Of course, the duel between leaders Dinamo Moscow and 5th-placed Fakel aroused particular interest among volleyball fans in Russia. And it was not only because both teams are title contenders in the 2020/21 Superliga Parimatch, but also because the team from the north of the country was the only one who inflicted a defeat to Dinamo Moscow in the championship so far. Dinamo had a desire to take revenge in a match valid for Round 22 but failed and thus suffered one more defeat against Fakel in the season: 1-3 (23:25, 23:25, 25:20, 23:25), and they broke the rival’s huge winning streak of 14 games in all competitions (10 games in the league).

On the other matches, sweeping Neftyanik by a 3-0, Zenit Saint Petersburg with 12 points by Ukrainian-Russian Dmytro Pashytskyy ended their own series of losses that consisted of 3 games and moved up to 3rd place in the standings.
A surprisingly long winning streak of ASK Nizhniy Novgorod of 8 games has been broken by Ural Ufa (1-3) for which Canadian John Gordon Perrin scored 22 points, Evgeniy Rybakov served 4 aces, and Dmitriy Kolenkovskiy made 4 blocks. Yugra Samotlor Nizhnevartovsk defeats on their home soil Dinamo LO 3:1, while Zenit Saint Petersburg defeats on the road Neftyanik Orenburg in straight sets
