New Russian Cup champion Emin Garibov led his team to victory over Italy, at a dual meet held Saturday evening in Porto San Giorgio.

The Russians topped Italy's A team, 356.250-349.250, with another Italian squad finishing third 335.500.

Garibov missed on pommel horse, but still won the all-around with 89.450. Italy's Matteo Morandi was second with 88.450, .1 ahead of Russia's Nikita Ignatyev.

Russia sent six members of its world training squad: Garibov, Ignatyev, Denis Ablyazin, David Belyavsky, Sergei Khorokhordin and Konstantin Pluzhnikov. The other two members of the squad, Andrei Cherkasov and Anton Golotsutskov, competed at the Challenger Cup in Ghent.

Despite struggling on pommel horse, the Russians impressed their hosts, said Italian technical director Fulvio Vailati.

"We have seen very good gymnastics," Vailati said. "The Russian group seems completely recharged to me, and they will give everyone a hard time at the next world championships in Tokyo. There were some positives in the Italian routines, while in others I've noticed some problems."

Morandi, the 2010 European champion on still rings, finished behind Pluzhnikov, the reigning continental champion, 15.90-15.70.

"To be honest, I didn't give too much importance on the competition with Konstantin," Morandi said. "This time around I did all six events with rings in the last rotation. I mostly was interested in trying the new routine with a 6.8 Difficulty Score, and that is what I will continue to work on in the coming days until the world championships in Tokyo."

On Saturday afternoon, Youth Olympian Daniil Kazachkov led the Russian junior team to victory over two Italian squads. Kazachkov and teammate Alexei Rostov finished 1-2 in the all-around over Italy's Filippo Landini.

"They were stronger, no doubt about this," Italian national coach Maurizio Allievi said of the Russian juniors. "I have to say, however, that our team challenged Moscow's best gymnasts, decreasing the gap between the two groups. I consider myself very happy, and the junior national team is really coming together. It's less than a year until the 2012 Junior European Championships, but there's still time to improve."
