Dinamo Krasnodar beat Iskra Odintsovo in three – sets despite playing without Facundo Conte. During the absence of the Argentinean star, Roman Yakovlev took over his executive duties, scoring 20 points. Zenit Kazan revenged Gazprom Surgut for the straight failure several weeks ago. This time, Gazprom even was not allowed to think about any win by Vladimir Alekno’s team. As the result, Zenit still occupies the first place in the blue group.
