As part of the next match of the group stage of the OI-2020, volleyball players from Brazil and Russia will come face to face. Which of the opponents will get the victory in this meeting? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.

Brazil

The Brazilian national team creates a very ambiguous impression with its performances at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. After the opening victory over Tunisia in three sets, the meeting with the Argentines was extremely difficult. The Brazilians had to turn on to the fullest and literally save the game. As a result, the South Americans not only won back from 0: 2, but also managed to get the final victory, having issued a successful result in a tie-break with a score of 16: 14.

Russia

The Russian team is still playing very smoothly at the start of the Olympic Games. Our national team has won over the Argentines and Americans in four sets. With such results, the issue of reaching the playoffs has actually been resolved, but now it's worth trying to compete for the highest places in the group in order to get as simple an opponent as possible in the matches. In the upcoming match, the "red machine" is not the favorite of the game, but will try to do everything to defeat the opponent.

Statistics and figures:

  • Brazil is the favorite of the match;
  • The Brazilians have a 4-match winning streak;
  • Russia has 2 wins in the tournament;
  • The Russians won the last face-to-face meeting against their opponent with a score of 3:1.

Forecast                                

I think that the Russians can defeat a team that hardly outplays the Argentines, escaping on a tie-break. In this match, Russia will be able to realize its potential and finally strengthen its position in the standings.
