Russia: Dinamo Moscow survive after being 2 sets down in Nizhnevartovsk. Win also for St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk

2 min read

Three marches of 2021/22 Superliga Parimatch Round 10 were played today.
Defending champions Dinamo Moscow struggled in the third match in a row in the competition, showing clear signs of crisis in play.
It was expected that they will experience problems in this away match, given they arrived in Nizhnevartovsk just a couple of days after their CEV Champions League game in Belgium.
But the hosts Yugra-Samotlor were in an excellent mood in the first two sets, which they took, but failed to upset favored club from the country’s capital who won their second tie-breaker in the last three matches, closing the game 16-18. Bulgarian Tsvetan Sokolov top-scored the winners with 25 points, including six aces, while Ilya Vlasov made 79% attack (11/14), but decisive are the entry of Bogdan and Belogortchev in place of Semyshev and Likhosherstov.
Dinamo moved up from fourth to third place in the charts.

On the other matches, Zenit Saint Petersburg recorded the third win in a row but remained fifth in the standings, while Lokomotiv took a provisional lead after a straight-set win over Ural Ufa, pushing Zenit-Kazan, who played one game less, to the second place.
