Zenit SAINT PETERSBURG v Sport LISBOA e Benfica

Article
  1. That was first game between Zenit and Benfica ever. 
  2. Zenit plays in CEV Champions League for a second time in club history
  3. Egor Klyuka didn’t play on Wednesday due to a back injury
  4. Opposite of Zenit Ivan Podrebinkin played on Wednesday only second full match in this season. 
  5. Toumas Sammelvuo took the first time out in the match during the 3rd set, when Benfica was in the lead 17-14. 

 

Marcel Matz, HEAD COACH OF BENFICA (LISBON)

Соmeback in the 3rd set was possible, but this is very difficult to fight against opponent with strong service like Zenit.  We tried to do our best and we are pleased by performance of our team tonight. 

Tuomas Sammelvuo, HEAD COACH OF ZENIT (SAINT PETERSBURG)

We are satisfied tonight, because as we spoke with the team at the morning every point and every set in this competition are very important. We started with a victory today and off course I am satisfied for the result and for the level of our game tonight.

 

Tine Urnaut, OUTSIDE SPIKER OF ZENIT (SAINT PETERSBURG)

We played again like a completely new team, and this was so strange, but we could put the pressure with our good service and that was easier to play for us when we made a gap in the beginning of the sets. In 3rd set we did too many mistakes in side out, we got down the intensity of our play, but in the end we could win this game.

 

Peter Wohlfahrtstatter, MIDDLE BLOCKER OF BENFICA (LISBON)

We have a lot of  Brazilian players, some of them plays for the first time in the Champions League. They have a lot of adrenalin, they want a little bit to match. So, we played a little bit nervous in the beginning but in the 3rd set we had some fun on the court and this made our play better. So I think we will improve in the next games.
