Next matches tomorrow.
Moscow is leading the third place series 2:0. They won the 5th set in both matches 15:13! Kazan is doing better than in the semis. They would probably be stronger had they used Popova in the second half of the season instead of Lazareva... Lukianova played most of the second match and made 20 pts. (49 %, Kadochkina 26 pts./43 %, Bricio 23 pts./44 %). Bricio is not playing her best in the playoffs (receptions is weaker than Kadochkina's who is not that good a receiver, only 27 % in attack first match against Moscow after 12 % in second semi).
Loko won the second match 3:1 (had match points at 24:22 in third set). As expected Uralochka was not able to keep the level of attacking efficiency from the first match (went from 59 % to 46 %, Kostyuchik, Kotova and Fitisova dropped considerably).
