Brazil swept Portugal on Week 3 closing in the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League.


In a duel of national teams of the two countries that are colloquially called brothers, knowing that they both speak Portuguese as an official language, Brazil were ruthless in Pool 9 encounter, saddening the packed stands at the Pavilhão Multiusos de Gondomar (4,000 spectators): 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-18). Interestingly, Brazil did not make a single block in the match but still managed to sweep the rivals. Portugal suffered most defeats at major world-level tournaments exactly to Brazil (21), recording only one win so far. Yoandy Leal scored 15 points for the “Seleção“ (7-1), while Alexandre Ferreira made 13 for Portugal (2-6).


Serbia avoided playing the seventh successive tie-break as they downed China in four sets, also in pool 9, to equal their longest VNL winning streak (5). Miran Kujundžić top-scored for Serbia (5-4) with 16 points. The most prolific player for China, who lost fifth in a row (1-8), was Jiang Chuan with 18 points.
