Not long to go now to the final games of the Final Four of the men's Volleyball Champions League 2018
being played in Kazan, Russia
, next weekend 12 and 13 May.
The Basketball Arena
is where the most sought-after and prestigious trophy, contested between the four teams left in this season's competition, will be awarded. The huge favourites, on the eve of the matches, are Zenit Kazan
, sporting the Erreà logo, organiser of the event and winner of the last three Champions Leagues.
The Russian heavyweights appear unbeatable and playing in front of their home supporters they will be attempting to win a legendary fourth title, even if their opponents will be hard nuts to crack. In the semifinal Perugia, spurred on by Ivan Zaytsev and Aleksandar Atanasijevic, will be out for revenge after having lost last year’s final in Rome. Civitanova, on the other hand, in their third consecutive Final Four, will play their semi-final against ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle, the Polish team coached by Andrea Gardini, that are totally within the reach of Osmany Juantorena and his team mates, who are keen to lead Lube to victory after sixteen years in the wilderness.
