Accelerate Brazil, overthrow Serbia and react to the League of Nations volleyball

The answer had to be immediate. And, just hours after the defeat against Italy, Brazil reacted in the best possible way. Against Serbia, another opponent at the time, the selection of José Roberto Guimarães did not give way to a new fall at the Nilson Nelson Sports Center in Brazil. Firmly from the start, the team flipped the opponent in 3 sets to 0, 25/21, 25/9 and 25/21 partial.

Very badly on the ground against Italy, Brazil got the win this Sunday through a blockade. On Saturday, there were only five points. Against Serbia, the team closed the match with a total of 19. Carol, with six, Kisy and Pri Daroit, with five, stood out.

In the overall score, Gabi, Pri Daroit and Kisy were the top scorers with 14 points. Carol, 13, followed closely. On the other hand, Bjelica, with eight points, was the main name of a powerless Serbia.

An interesting detail of the match was the presence of the players of the Italian national team in the gym. Paola Egonu and other friends insisted on watching the match between the two main rivals in the league without planning a match for this Sunday.

Sept. 1 – Firmly begins before Brazil

A mistake by Kisy opened the account for the other side as well. But, having to react in the league, Brazil came out on the court with a different attitude. It was a balanced start, it’s true. But, unlike the previous day, he knew how to take advantage of opportunities. He made it 8/5 on Gabi’s shot and immediately opened the scoring. The blockade, which was effective against the Italians, was also evolving. So Kisy climbed to stop the Serbian attack and scored 10/6.

At a point of inattention, Serbia reacted and pulled away, narrowing the gap to one point (10/9). But it was only for a short time. At the touch of Bjelica’s goal, the score rose to 14/10. Opponents even threatened him with a reaction at times. The home selection, however, remained steadfast. In Kisy’s block, he made it 20/16 and advanced to victory in the set. In the end, a block of Pri Daroit gave the final partial numbers: 25/21.

Returning to the court, Brazil accelerated. Without sweating, he soon rolled the scoreboard: after another Kisy block, 8/1. At that moment, Serbia seemed powerless. Two blocks from Carol in a row, the advantage jumped to 19/8. The selection has not slowed down. With a blow from Kisy, he widened the gap to 20/8.

Brazil played loose. To the madness of the people, he did not even give them a chance to react. Blocking was the team’s biggest weapon at the time – he had 14 points before the end of the half. Eventually, one of Carol’s accounts closed: 9/25.

Sept. 3 – Serbia plays hard, but Brazil closes the scoring

Serbia wanted to react when he returned to the court. Initially, it started earlier and opened 9/6. But Brazil went looking for him. In the attack of the opponents, everything is the same in the lead. The turn came when Pri Daroit blocked it, opening the account 13/12. The match was kept balanced. But, even at the worst of times, the selection remained steadfast.

In Diana’s block, the team scored 17/15, and the gym exploded. He also tried to keep Serbia fighting. But with power, Brazil imposed itself. From then on, he gave his opponents no chance. In a Gabi attack, it opened 19/16. It didn’t take long for the home side to close the scoring: another shot from Gabi, 25/21.
