The Azores bypassed Turkey without problems and close on Wednesday with China. It is important that you win them all for combos
Italy takes the pass to the second round and leaves nowhere in the street. Having defeated Canada, he reasserts himself with Turkey, adding something more to his performance. An increase in substance compared to the beginning.
Italy-Turkey 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-22)
Ferdinando de Giorgi from Squenzano does not change the lineup: against Turkey sends the same team that surpassed Canada to the field. And the Azuri responds well on the spot against Adis Lagumdzija and his teammates (in Turkey, his brother also plays the role of the second opponent). Breaking 4-5 points on the spot sets things straight and the Turks are forced to chase (in vain). Well, the joke, but also the blue wall is a good watchdog. Giannilli distributes well to his teammates in an effort to immediately put everyone in the game, Turkey falter, and Michelto remains the blue attack’s reference point (7 points, 86%). The Turkish reception hurts and the first set ends on the blues side without jerks. The music doesn’t change much in the second set even if Lavia only maintains good proportions in attack, on the other hand, serving and blocking continue to do their job continuously. Rosso (who did not participate in the European Championship a year ago) in the middle of the goal overwhelms his opponents. Some bumps in reception are due to Turkish bumps, but the blue spacecraft knows no obstructions. Italy is leaving smoothly.
Unlike in the first game with Canada, here the Blues don’t give the Turks a chance to get back into the match (5-1), they seal it and we see they want to go to dinner “early” (considering the beginning). There is room for Simon Anzani, a European gold veteran, to make his debut. Then the Italian defense does the rest, and the Turks understand that it is not the evening and that they have to bet everything in the match with Canada to break the pace by the second stage. On the other hand, Italy has started to think about the match against China that will close the group, then it will wait patiently to understand who it will find in the round of 16 and especially when it will play.
