In one of the matches of the group stage of the women's 2022 Volleyball World Cup, the players of the US and Bulgaria national teams will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal evaluates the opponents' chances of success.
The American national team plays in the combat squad at the Volleyball World Championship. It is worth noting that the USA has already managed to hold two meetings within the framework of the tournament. The Americans were able to win the opening match over Kazakhstan, defeating their rivals with a score of 3:0. After that, the Americans were stronger than Canada, which they also defeated with a score of 3:0. In fact, the game with Bulgaria is the first more or less serious test. Thanks to their magnificent form, the "stars and stripes" are listed as a clear favorite of the match.
The Bulgarian national team is not considered a solid team by world standards. It is worth noting the fact that the Balkan team, like their opponent, has already played 2 meetings at the volleyball World Cup. In the first game Bulgaria gave battle to Germany, but still lost to its rivals with a score of 1:3, while in the second meeting Bulgaria lost in a tie-break to Serbia with a score of 2:3. 1 point scored leaves the Bulgarians in the exit zone to the second round of the competition.
Statistics and figures:
- USA is the favorite of the meeting;The Americans won three times in 5 meetings;
- Bulgaria has won only once in 5 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of the USA.
I think that in this match the Bulgarian national team will try to break through the base total of 136.5 points. The Balkan collective is not as weak as it may seem at first glance. Bulgaria will be able to provide decent resistance to the opponents.
