MONTREUX MASTERS 2019: Italy two steps away to retain the gold

1073 0

The league round of the women’s volleyball Montreux Masters 2019 tournament has been finished.

 

These four teams will compete in the semifinals:

Poland vs. Thailand 18:45 CET

Italy vs. Japan 21:15 CET

The Italian girls have ended the group stage in the first place, having a 2-1 score, which was enough to reach the semifinals. Their rivals in the semifinals, Japan, had the same score in Pool A, finishing second behind Poland, who also had a 2-1 score.

If Italy beat Japan, they will have an opportunity to retain the trophy that they won in 2018, beating Russia in the final. 

Italy are playing this tournament without two important players, Paola Egonu and Miryam Sylla.

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
