Russia: Zenit-Kazan without Bednorz, succumb to Dinamo Moscow in big match of Round 6. Win also for Yugra, Dinamo LO, Fakel and St. Petersburg

2 min read

There is one less undefeated team in the 2021/22 Russian Volleyball Championship after the sixth round!

After two advances played yesterday, on Friday, Round 6 was completed today. Still crisis for Kuzbass Kemerovo, which entered the season with the highest ambitions, but continued showing unsatisfactory performance. Today, still without Brazilian Alan Souza (injured), they were overhelmed by Zenit Saint Petersburg without a fight (0-3). Egor Kliuka top-scored the winners with 15 points.

Lot of balance and emotions in the most highly awaited match of weekend, in Dinamo Moscow downed Zenit-Kazan in the tie-break in a fantastic duel lasted almost three hours.
Losing the top match, which captured the audience in Kazan from the very first rally, Zenit lost their invincibility so now Lokomotiv remained the only team with a perfect record in the competition. Even though this cannot serve as an excuse for a defeat, it has to be stressed that Zenit could not count on the Pole Bartosz Bednorz (replaced by Surmachevskiy) in the match due to health problems.
In fifth set the hosts made a comeback from 6-9 to 11—9 thanks to
Christenson’s serves, but the entrance in serving of second setter Sventitskis in place of middle-blocker Vlasov change the plans, helping Belogortchev’s block (11-11), an error by Mikhaylov (11-12), a counterattack by Bogdan (11-13) and a direct ace (11-14). Denis Bogdan closed at third match point. He was the top scorer of the winners with 21 poits, 55%
and 42% efficiency in attack, 1 block e 2 aces. Mikhaylov was instead the best on the other side of the net with 25 points, 51% and 40% efficiency in attack.
Both Dinamo and Zenit are at 5-1.

2-3 also the match between ASK Nizhniy Novgorod and Dinamo LO (decisive for the guests the entrance of Pirainen in place of Zhigalov), while Yugra Samotlor Nizhnevartovsk a little bit surprisingly defetas by 3-1 Yenisey Krasnoyarsk (still without starting opposite Klets).
Close the picture the clear 3-0 won by young Fakel Novy Urengoy over modest Orenburg, who remain with 0 in the charts.
