Russia was the absolute favorite of this match. The Russian blocks looked like a kind of wall that the Portuguese players were not able to find a way through; Russia’s performance was absolutely terrific and a real delight for quite many 15, 23, fans that had got together at the “KV Arena” hall. The winners of World League 2011 won in four sets (25:15, 23:25, 25:23, 25:22). Portuguese captain: Joao José commented: "In today’s game we didn’t get too many chances. We fulfilled our goal to perform well. Now we must think about tomorrow’s game with Estonia that we have to win to qualify for the next round". Best scorer of match was Maxim Mikhaylov, who scored 22 points (49% in attack). Russian coach: Vladimir Alekno said: "We have been preparing for a difficult match and a difficult opponent. Portugal gave us no right to make any mistake. We made an important step towards to the qualification for the next round".
