As part of the match of the men's Volleyball League of Nations, the players of the national teams of the Netherlands and Germany will come face to face. Which side will win this match? Our sports portal evaluates the chances of success of teams.
The national team of the Netherlands at the last tournament of the League of Nations was able to reach the 1/4 finals of the tournament, but could not advance further, losing in a face-to-face match to Italy with a score of 1:3. At the volleyball World Championship, the Orange also showed far from the best level of play, failed to even reach the playoffs of the tournament. In the new tournament of the League of Nations, the Dutch lost to the USA in the first match (0:3), after which they were able to confidently beat Cuba in three sets (3:0).
The German national team has not shown a good game for a long time. At the last Nations League, Germany failed to reach the playoffs, taking only the 12th place in the round-robin round. At the Volleyball World Cup, Germany reached the 1/8 finals stage, where, however, it was extremely unconvincing and lost to Slovenia with a score of 1:3. Within the framework of the League of Nations tournament, the German team held one meeting, in which they lost to Brazil with a score of 1:3.
Statistics and figures:
- Germany is the favorite of the meeting;
- The Netherlands won three times in 5 matches;
- Germany lost 4 out of 5 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 3:1 in favor of the Netherlands.
I believe that the opponents will play four sets in this match. In addition, opponents will break through the total points scored for a solid bookmaker's quote and show really interesting volleyball.
