As part of one of the quarterfinal matches of the OI-2020 in Tokyo, volleyball players of the national teams of Italy and Argentina will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming confrontation?
The Italian team performed well at the group stage of the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Skuadra Azzurra has 4 wins and 1 defeat, which the team suffered in the confrontation with Poland. Within the framework of this match, it was not possible to take even a set. In the last match of the group round, the Italians were able to break the resistance of the Venezuelans, winning dry. Italy is a good team, which is the favorite of the duel.
The national team of Argentina, perhaps, is the main opening of the group round of the Olympic Games in Japan. Few people expected that the team would be able to get out of the group after the defeat at the start from Russia (1: 3). Nevertheless, the Argentines got down to business and were able to get out of the group, guaranteeing themselves the third place in the group. It is worth noting that the South American team at this tournament, in addition to Russia, was beaten only by Brazil, and even then only in five sets.
Statistics and figures:
- Italy is the favorite of the meeting;
- Italy has won the last 3 matches;
- Argentina was able to win in the last 3 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of Italy.
Argentina has already presented several sensations at the tournament. Next up is another interesting result. I think that the South Americans are able to please their fans and defeat Italy, knocking it out of the tournament.
