WCH 2018 M: Juantorena and Zaytsev improve Italy's score to 6-0!

480 1

Six out of six - that's the record of the Italian men's volleyball national team at the FIVB Volleyball World Championship!

 

They are very close to claiming the spot at the Final Six of the World Champs and only a miracle can prevent them from joining the third round.

Italy didn't have any difficulties in a game against Finland, defeating them in straight sets 3-0 (25-20, 25-18, 25-16).

Osmany Juantorena and Ivan Zaytsev topped the list of the best scorers with 14 points each, while on the other side Urpo Sivula had 12.

Italy has done a nice job but by far has had the easiest road to the Finals. They have yet to play a quality opponent (top 10 team) . Yeah I know possibly Argentina but they have issues. They are about to have a wake up call very soon

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply

If Russia had won the match even in 5 sets they would have classified because they would have ended up with same number of victories than us but one more point. So before the last set against China ended USA was not classified Reply
