VNL F6 W: Brazil crushed China for top place in Pool A

1375 0

In the derby of the Pool A at the Final Six of the FIVB 2018 Volleyball Nations League, Brazil celebrated victory in three sets (25-20, 25-22, 25-22) over China and took the top position after two wins.

  

Brazil and China will play in the semifinal of the VNL but today’s match decided which team will go from the top position. That is Brazil.

Tandara Alves Caixeta once again was the leader of the team with 19 points (16 att, 1 bl and 2 ac) followed by Gabriela Braga Guimaraes 14 points and Adenizia Da Silva 10 points.

China were never really able to put their opponents under sustained pressure, despite another stellar performance from captain Zhu Ting, who contributed 13 points while middle blocker Xinyue Yuan was also strong with 8 points. 

Brazilian captain Roberta da Silva Ratzke after the match said: “I am happy about the game. I am happy about the attitude of the team today. We found our tempo even when we knew it was going to be a tough game. We went to the court to do our best. Today’s experience was great and now we have to rest for a while so we can play against Turkey tomorrow.” 

The home captain Zhu Ting said: “I want to congratulate Brazil for winning this match. We did not do our best today. We wasted some important changes so that is something that we need to improve tomorrow."

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

SLO M: ACH Volley crowned champions for the 15th consecutive season

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