As part of the men's volleyball match of the group stage, volleyball players of the Russian and Tunisian national teams will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming meeting?
The Russian national team lost to the French after three opening winning matches over Argentina, the USA and Brazil. Unfortunately, the team did not manage to oppose anything to the "tricolor". Our guys lost in four sets. Despite this, the Russians remained on the first line in their group. In case of a victory over the Tunisian national team in three or four sets, the Sammulvuo team can take the first place in its sextet.
The Tunisian national team, after two initial dry defeats from Brazil and France, was able to prove a worthy resistance to the US national team, losing in four games and in five sets to the Argentines, leading 2: 0 during the match. The team has no chances for the playoffs. In the last match, the Tunisians showed their maximum. Above the head in a duel with Russia, embittered by its own misfire, it will not be possible to show anything.
Statistics and figures:
- Russia is the favorite of the meeting;
- The Russian national team has 3 wins in 4 meetings at the OI;
- Tunisia has suffered 4 defeats in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the teams ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of Tunisia.
Most likely, we will not see 4 sets in this meeting. The Russian national team will have to secure the first place in the group, and will be able to do this thanks to a victory with a " dry " score.
