Is there a way out for Italy?

Germany

Germany

No Ivan Zaytsev and Osmany Juantorena, no victory! Germany has found a way to beat the Italian side in an amazing five-set thriller, even though Italy had the 2-1 lead!

How did Italy manage to drop that lead? Gyorgy Grozer is guilty. The man who has decided to return to the national team this summer had a stunning display, especially in the key moments. He ended game with 28 points, pushing the team to very important victory,

Luca Vettori was the top scorer in Italy with 18 points, while Filippo Lanza had 17.

This is the second huge upset today, as the Belgian side defeated the reigning champions in five sets as well.
