Tokyo 2020: South American duel in indoor Olympic volleyball

With different impulses, Brazil and Argentina face each other for the second date of the men’s indoor volleyball tournament. On the first day, Brazil comfortably beat Tunisia and Argentina fell to ROC 3-1. For this reason, this clash is of vital importance in terms of positioning in Group B.

Argentina came out to play the game with De Cecco, Lima, Solé, Loser, Conte, Palacios and Danani and although it started 0-2 in the first set, it immediately settled down after a great defense from libero Danani and got 6-3, which forced the Brazilian coach to ask for technical time.

And the work done by Brazil paid off, since they immediately regained the leadership on the board, first by 8 to 7 and then stretching it to 11 to 9, with their preferred weapons: blocking and attacking through the center.
