Sesi-SP and Sada Cruzeiro will fight for the trophy in the 2017 Brazilian men’s volleyball cup, whose Final Four is held in the city of São Paulo.



With five Olympic Games gold medalists in their line-up (William, Murilo, Lucão, Lipe, and Douglas Souza), the Final Four hosts Sesi-SP made sure that the repetition of the last season’s Copa Brasil finals does not have the same outcome. They swept EMS Taubaté Funvic by a 3-0 in the semifinal of this year’s tournament, 3-0 (25-22, 25-17, 27-25). Taubaté might have provided a tougher resistance if their starting setter Raphael Oliveira „Rapha“ did not suffer an injury in the midst of the first set.

Sesi’s rivals in the gold medal match will be Sada Cruzeiro. Superliga titleholders took revenge on Sesc-RJ for a defeat in the league, less than two weeks ago, by eliminating them in the Brazilian cup semis, 3-1 (25-17, 20-25, 25-21, 25-23).

The final game will be held in Vila Leopoldina gymnasium on January 28th at 00:30 CET (January 27th at 21:30 BRST).
