Kazan, Russia. November 4, 2017. The match for the Russian Super Cup trophy of the season aroused great interest and for the first time in the Volleyball Center more than 4 thousand spectators gathered. Zenit Kazan brought up their trophy on the podium this year, after won over Dinamo Moscow in three straight sets.

Vladimir Alekno, head coach of Zenit:
– The most important and expensive today is that the SuperCup helped us to assemble a full hall. Of course, the game did not last long, but I think everyone enjoyed it. Dinamo has a lot of injuries. We were well prepared for this composition, tactically played well, and somewhere were stronger due to the class of players.

Boris Kolchin, head coach of Dinamo:
– In two games we resisted with dignity, coped with Zenit at the reception, which I would like to note. Previous opponents allowed Kazan to make 10 aces, and we missed only two serves. With a team that has such a pitch, it’s worth a lot. I will not complain about the problems with the composition, but today it was hard without blocking. Of course, the rival was ready for the fact that we will not have attacks at the first rate. They tried, although not everything worked out.
