As part of the round-robin match of the men's Volleyball League of Nations, the players of the Bulgarian and Chinese national teams will come face to face. Which side will win this match? Our sports portal evaluates the chances of success of teams.
The Bulgarian national team performed extremely poorly at the Volleyball World Championship last year. "Tricolor" were able to take only the last place in their group and could not reach the playoffs, playing in the same company with Poland, the USA and Mexico. The Bulgarian national team did not hold friendly matches before the new League of Nations tournament, and therefore it is difficult to say in what form the Balkan team is in.
As for the Chinese national team, the nominal guests also at the Volleyball World Cup could not even get out of the group. Moreover, the matches against Turkey, Canada and Italy were lost with a score of 0:3, which led to the departure of the team at the beginning of the tournament. But the Chinese team became the winner of the Asian Cup, defeating Japan in the final meeting (3:0). Before the tournament, the Chinese squad did not hold friendly matches.
Statistics and figures:
- Bulgaria is the favorite of the meeting;
- The Balkan team has a 3-match losing streak;
- China lost 3 previous matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 3:1 in favor of China.
I am sure that the Chinese national team will be able to overcome its opponent, despite the quotes of bookmakers. In addition, the total offered in the line will play in this match, since this match will not end in three sets.
