Russia: Kuzbass squeeze Zenit-Kazan out and go directly to Final Six! Dinamo Moscow also wins

1 min read

Kuzbass Kemerovo beat Enisey and secured a promotion to the Final Six of the 2020/21 Russian Superliga Parimatch.
In a delayed match of the 9th round, they beat Enisey by a 3-1 (25:14, 22:25, 25:12, 27:25) and went directly to the Final six to which the top 2 sides in the charts are entitled. Led by Italian Ivan Zaytsev, author of 19 points, the Kemerovo side squeezed Zenit-Kazan out of the 2nd place in the standings, meaning they joined regular-season winners Dinamo Moscow (who today beats ASK Nizhniy Novgorod at tie break despite they already secured first place), who directly advanced to the final tournament, too. Due to such developments, Zenit-Kazan will have to make their way to the Final Six via playoffs!
