Berlin slowly caving to Dinamo's service pressure.

I find Grankin's preference to set near the opposite during system plays disturbing though.

He's basically asking his opposite last second to adjust when he is setting him.

Berlin's serving was weak but I thought Grankin in-system setting near the opposite Bakun early in the game costed them the game. They adjusted but Berlin just hung in there with their lead all through out the first set.

Interesting and exciting match so far. Berlin is playing really well. I hope that, in the end, this first set win was crucial :super:

Grankin is playing terribly. His teammates are playing well but his tosses need some some work.

He is forcing the fast ball to the wings just a bit too much.....

Berlin's serve pressure is now getting better.

Dinamo's blocking is getting rusty as well.

Great serving run from Grankin. I love that fake jump serve.

Glad to see that his connection with Volkov is still alive too. That was a nice set from him.

Damn, Berlin lost this set way to easily. No need for this... :wall: If we talk again about a crucial set, i fear this might have been one....

Berlin's serving is too inconsistent for this level. Paul Carroll is their only saving grace when he's on the service line.

It's now do or die for Berlin for the fourth set.

Now Berlin has two chances to book the ticket for Rome. :super:

Some dinamo players look seriously tired. But maybe its just gambling......

Dinamo Moscow is falling apart... cannot believe they blow away 2 sets lead again.

Their bosses are already shaking heads.

Once Berlin's serving pressure got to Dinamo, it was over.

Berlin were also good recoverers while Dinamo were just not good at digging easy balls.

BERLIN! I SERIOUSLY wonder how much they can accomplish this season if they keep playing like this :)
Btw bit off topic but the atmosphere during Challenge Cup final between Chaumont and Novy Urengoj rocks :)

Not really, there have been "weaker" teams especially if you consider the whole competition history, not only the "new" Champions League after 2000, but i would say this is possibly the biggest surprise in last 5-6 years.
