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

707 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: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply

I believe there has been a typo. Libero is Jani Kovačič and not Jan Pokeršnik(receiver) Reply
