Dinamo edges Fenerbahce to keep its chances to make it to Playoffs 12
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Men
Moscow, Russia, December 5, 2012. Dinamo MOSCOW remains in contention for a spot in the Playoffs 12 of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men after claiming a very important home match with Turkey’s Fenerbahce Grundig ISTANBUL with the score of 3:1 (24-26, 25-23, 27-25, and 25-16). With 2’400 fans in attendance, Dinamo stood out especially in blocking (14 vs. 9) and impressed also with its efficiency in attack (53%). Pavel Kruglov paced Dinamo with 20 points while Ivan Miljkovic top scored for Fenerbahce with 24.
“This was a very difficult match” says Dinamo head coach Yuri Cherednik. “I do not need to speak about the strength and quality of the players included in the roster of Fenerbahce, such as Miljkovic or Marshall. We were able to claim the second set and that was the turning point along the way to this win”. “We made fewer mistakes than our opponents did, especially in the last section of the sets” explains Kruglov. “However, we did not play with the necessary quality, as we got into trouble even in some easy situations. Finally we are happy with this win”.
Before playing Tomis CONSTANTA next Wednesday in Romania to possibly pocket its ticket to the Playoffs 12, Dinamo MOSCOW will play an away match for the Russian Superleague against the team of Dinamo KRASNODAR.
