Russia and Italy meet in the final of the CEV European Championship at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen today.

The Russians defeated defending champion Serbia 25-19 24-26 25-23 25-15 in yesterday's semifinal to reach the final of this event for the first time since 2007.

The Italians, meanwhile, return to the final after losing to Serbia two years ago after beating Bulgaria 19–25 25–22 25–15 25–22.
This is a showdown of the two winningest teams in the European Championship. Russia has won this tournament 12 times as part of the old Soviet Union while Italy is a six-time champion in this competition.

The two sides played each other in the final of the EuroVolley in 1991, 1999 and 2005. The Soviet Union won their first meeting but the Italians triumphed in the next two. Russia has yet to win a European crown after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
