The Erythrolefki took the first set over the Russian hosts by a score of 25-21. The second set was also close, as Olympiacos found themselves narrowly leading 21-19, before eventually taking it 25-21. The Russians would be no match for Olympiacos in the third set, as the Greeks took it 25-19 to complete the 3-0 sweep.

The second leg will take place in Piraeus on March 21. Olympiacos will only need to win one set at home in order to make the final. If they do so, they would face the winner of Bunge Ravenna and Maliye Piyango SK Ankara.
