Zenit Kazan has been beaten by Lokomotiv Novosibirsk in the first semi-final of the 2013 Champions League Final Four after exciting five sets game. A reserve player of Lokomotiv: Ilya Zhylin, became a super hero of the duel. The wing-spiker scored 5 points only in tie-break. After that game Lucas Divis said: "we couldn't win with Kazan for two years!". Most of balls in attack were addressed to Marcus Nillson. He ended 18 of 42 attacks. He will play in Champions League final again, just like in Prague against Trentino Volley. Also Divis played on high efficiency: 58% (15/26 attacks). “The team that makes more mistakes is always the side that eventually loses. This defeat does not come as a surprise as we made a lot of mistakes today. Congratulations to our opponents on their win and good luck for the final match” Zenit mentor Vladimir Alekno stated. “Ilya Zhilin came from the bench for Lokomotiv and he did a great job helping his side claim this well-deserved victory”.
