Russia have opened the game by taking the first set very quickly 25-16, however, in the second the set we saw an answer from the French side to tie the score 1-1 (25-23).
To prove that they are the main favorites for winning the World Championship gold, the Russians started playing again at the highest level, destroying the shaky defense of the French side for a new lead 2-1 (25-20).
