Score in the series: 1-0.

The teams from Zhytomyr VC "Zhytichi-Polissia" and Dnipro VC "Prometey" became the second semi-final pair of the Ukrainian volleyball championship among men's teams of the Super League-Budinvest of the 2022-2023 season.

From the first rallies, volleyball players from Dnipro dominated this match (13:3). At first, the players of Zhytomyr could do nothing with the serves of Heorhii Klepko (2 aces), and then with the attacks of Ian Yereshchenko (5 points) and Dmytro Yanchuk (5 points), who were perfectly assisted by the setter Vitalii Shchytkov - 25:12. 

The second set was similar to the first: leadership belonged to the team of Andrii Levchenko (11:5). On the other hand, "Zhytychi" could not cope with reception, attacks, or blocks. Serhii Tereykovsky's team also lacked traditional emotions, which in most cases brings them success. In the end, Dnipro won another set with a big margin of 25:13.

The long break did not make any drastic changes in the course of the match. Zhytomyr volleyball players tried to match the pace of game with the Dnipro team (4:4), but they did not succeed for a long (12:6).
