Gazprom-Ugra and Olympiacos to add another chapter to their rivalry in #CEVChallengeCupM semis
2018 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Men

Surgut, Russia, March 14, 2018. The 2018 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup – Men semi-final matches with Olympiacos PIRAEUS are something special for the fans of Gazprom-Ugra SURGUT. It is indeed the third time in three years that these two teams are locking horns in the European Cups – they did so in the quarterfinals of the CEV Volleyball Cup in the 2015-2016 season and in the 16th Finals of that same competition last year. On top of this, Todor Aleksiev – who played for SURGUT for a number of years and was the team captain as well – is now wearing the shirt of Olympiacos. Gazprom-Ugra and Olympiacos are crossing swords for the first time on Wednesday before the re-match follows next week in Greece.

The chances look equal even though Olympiacos have been the clearly dominant force of their national championship and have assembled a roster including many European stars. As for the home side, they can count on many experienced players and some newcomers as well – on top of the valuable experience they get from contesting the highly competitive Russian national championship.
