Bronze Medal Match.
The Italians already have World Championship silver medals. Chirichella, Bosetti, De Gennaro have bronze ones. In addition, the matches for third place at the last world championship and a year ago at the Olympics ended with the same score - in three games. The same thing may happen on Saturday.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The Brazilian team had never placed 21 blocks in four games before last night. But on Thursday the Italians helped them - that's exactly how many times they were shut out. It's not always the case that two dozen blocks can be placed even in five games by two teams, and here they are.
During four sets of the semifinal match Mazzanti's wards gave Brazil 31 points, 16 of which were given to Egon. Italian diagonal player was especially strong in the third and fourth sets, in which her score was almost equal to her number of mistakes (7:6 and 5:4 accordingly). That's no way to get to the finals. It looks like Paola can't go any further - the increased workload has worn her down.
At the same time the Italian National Team played strictly according to the book and our suppositions - 4:0 according to the aces and 9:5 according to the service faults. However, we intend to forget about statistics in the game for third place - motivation comes first.
The Americans played their semi-final, losing two games and trying to take advantage of their tired opponents. In the third set, Kesha Robinson handled the Serbs in one face, and in the fourth set, Karch Kiraly decided to increase the effect and sent in a fresh player to help her. Alas, Bejema's substitution for Franti was inadequate: Kara missed twice on the court in critical moments, and the game was lost. And we were sure that the Americans would win.
By the way, the USA national team defeated Serbia in both sprints and blocks and lost only one serve in four games. It was excellent, but what should we do with our own unnecessary mistakes? In short, if we're going to bet on stats, the best option is a minus handicap for Italy on serve errors.
