CEV Cup: Zenit record 18th win in row to confidently fly to quarterfinals, together with Galati and Karlovarsko (in Top-8 after 5 years)

2 min read

Russia’s Zenit Kazan once again trampled over the Dutch Orion Doetinchem and advanced to the quarter-finals of the 2021/22 CEV Volleyball Cup.
The game for Russian giants tonight wasn’t much different from the one in Kazan, ended with the same result, 3-0, and in both games they dominated in all components of the game. After the second set, Zenit’s head coach Aleksey Verbov changed almost the entire line-up, but this didn’t affect the course of the encounter. The most prolific player of the match came from the winning side, and he is Pole Bartosz Bednorz, who scored 12 points including 4 aces, while Dmitriy Volkov served 5 aces.
Zenit won the 18th match in a row (the 14th match in a row with 3-0) in all competitions and will play against countrymen Kuzbass Kemerovo in the Top-8.

Also Romania’s CSM Arcada Galaţi qualified to the next stage after quite an intense rematch against Germany’s United Volleys Frankfurt in which they were hosts: 3-2 (25:20, 27:29, 25:27, 27:25, 15:11). The Romanian champions, who had won 3-0 in the first leg (also played on their own court but in which they were formally guests), got the victory today harder than expected. United Volleys led 2-1 in the sets and even missed two set points for 3-1, a scored that would’ve pushed the match to the Golden Set.

After 5 years, the Czech ČEZ Karlovarsko qualified to the quarter-finals of the competition, and just like the last time they’ve done it, in 2017, France’s Tours VB will be their rival.
The Karlovy Vary side advanced to the next stage by defeating Turkey’s Galatasaray HDI İstanbul (3-0 and 3-1).
