Volleyball: Nations League, Italy returns to success, 3-0 to Slovenia

The Azzurri pushed by Michieletto and Lavia win their fifth victory in this tournament

Italy-Slovenia 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-21)

Italy returns to success in the Nation League, against Slovenia. Confirmed the team that had lost against Japan in the tiebreak, but the spirit and effectiveness are very different. The blues immediately start charging with Michieletto (up compared to the day before) and the usual Lavia supporting the blue attack. The rest is packaged by Giannelli in the center. Italy pushes on the accelerator and Slovenia (different in part from the one that had lost the European final in September and very much supported on Rok Mozic) staggers. Block and defense help the Azzurri to widen the break. Italy is in perfect control and secures the first set.

It does not change

The blues begin the second fraction in the same way and immediately make a void which becomes important, even 8 points. Towards the middle of the fraction Nicola Giolito, who leads Italy in these matches, changes Romanò with Pinali who will remain on the field even in the last fraction. There are no changes of pace for Italy that wants to achieve success and rise again in the standings. Entering the top eight would give the Azzurri the number 1 seed and therefore would have, on paper, a more favorable match in the quarters. Even in the third fraction Italy (when Sbertoli is seen on the field) does not lower the pace and always leaning on the attacks of his hammers wins the fifth victory of this Nations League. Tomorrow the closure of this stage in the Philippines, against China, which has accused Covid problems in recent days.
