1032 0

In the last match of the second stage at the FIVB World Championship for Women in Japan, the Netherlands defeated Serbia in straight sets (25-16, 25-12, 25-20) but both teams secured the Final Six in Nagoya.

  

Serbia played the whole match without Tijana Boskovic because coach Terzic wanted to rest her while on the other side, the Dutch girls were very motivated. With good serve they made a real mess for the Serbian reception and that was the key for the win.

Statistically, the Netherlands scored only 8 clear aces but they moved Serbian reception especially in the second set that they couldn’t organize any action. In one moment the result in the second set was 20-7 for the Netherlands.

Also, the winners were better in the block (11-6) and in attack (37-21) and Lonneke Sloetjes was the best scorer of the match with 23 points followed by Anne Buijs 11 points. On the Serbian side, Brankica Mihajlovic scored 10 points and Milena Rasic 8 points. Serbian opposite Ana Bjelica who replaced Boskovic during the whole match scored poor 6 points.

The Netherlands finished this stage of the competition in the top position.

In the other matches from Pool E, Puerto Rico outplayed Mexico and the Dominican Republic were better than Germany and they finished the competition with wins.

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply

If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer and it will force Lube to pull him off the floor.
The strength of Trentino has been a balanced atteck all year so the 'just Kovacevic argument' fails.
I feel if this goes to the 5th match Trentino is favored being at home and Lube doesnt do well in final games. Anyway it will be fun yo watch.
Perugia needs to be very very careful with Modena. Reply

1st set of Trentino was amazing, they blew off Lube. Block isnt good. For Perugia-Modena, Perugia will advance. Reply
