This weekend sees the Final Four of the Volleyball Champions League - Men: Zenit Kazan are going for a historic triple!
Rome’s PalaLottomatica is ready this weekend to host the Men's Final Four of the 2017 Volleyball Champions League - Men.
The best four teams in Europe will gather in Rome to battle it out for the prestigious trophy. Zenit Kazan, with Erreà as its official technical sponsor, is super favourite to win its third consecutive Champions League title: the Russian heavyweights, coached by Alekno and with outstanding players of the calibre of Leon and Anderson, will have to take on the season’s revelation, Berlin Recycling Volleys, in the semi-final.The other semi-final will be an all-Italian affair. In a repetition of last year's game, Civitanova will once again be playing in the semi, but this time against Perugia, the event's organizer. Lube, ahead by 1-0 in the Italian League Final against Trento, and already a winner in the Coppa Italia, starts the match as favourite. The Block Devils, on the other hand, beaten by Trento in game 5 of the semifinal play-offs, have an opportunity for revenge that must not go to waste. Ivan Zaytsev versus Osmany Juantorena, Aleksandar Atanasijevic against Tsvetan Sokolov - a truly unmissable spectacle!
Here is the complete timetable of matches:
SATURDAY 29 APRIL: 4.30pm - Semi-final 1: Zenit Kazan vs Berlin Recycling Volleys; 7.30pm - Semifinal 2: Sir Sicoma Colussi Perugia vs Cucine Lube Civitanova
SUNDAY 30 APRIL: 4.00pm Third place final; 7.00pm 2017 Volleyball Champions League - Men: Final
The very best of luck to Zenit Kazan!!!
