Italvolley, 3-0 to Serbia even without Ivan Zaytsev
Italy rediscovers the taste of the top of the standings for one night as it awaits upcoming matches thanks to its third win of week 3 over Serbia 3-0 (25-21, 25-14, 25-23). The Azzurri move up to 9 wins and 28 with just one match remaining in the preliminary phase before the Finals in Bologna where the Azzurri will take the court on Wednesday, July 20 at 9 p.m. for the Quarterfinals.
In tonight’s win over Serbia there was Italy’s usual skill in not giving up at key moments managing to catch up with the opponent especially in the third set when De Giorgi made some changes sending Sbertoli, Cortesia and Scanferla on court. 13 the point walls, 3 of Russo author of 10 points, but also 13 personal points of Romanò, back on court today from the start, and 11 of Daniele Lavia good in the service shifts that allowed Italy to come back in the moments when Serbia, dragged by a good Atanasijevic author of 15 points, went ahead.
Resilience, this is the value that has emerged in this week of VNL so far with an Italy that does not give up and prepares for the last commitment before the Finals to be played at home.
The Azzurri will be back on court Sunday at 5 p.m. for the last match of the preliminary phase with the Netherlands. Tomorrow will then be a day of training and study ahead of the last commitment against Nimir and his teammates on Sunday with an eye already on the Finals in Bologna.
