Usa vs Russia VolleyBall 2021 Olympics
Usa vs Russia VolleyBall.In men’s volleyball, the Russian Olympic Committee’s team advanced to 2-0 on Monday by thwarting a determined Team USA comeback.The Americans, led by Matt Anderson, began the match fresh off a 3-0 victory against France but fell behind 2-0 after winning sets 25-23 and 27-25.
With a hard-fought 25-21 victory in the third set, the Americans got back into the match and appeared poised to force a fifth when they took a 19-15 lead over the ROC in the fourth.
However, the Russian Olympic Committee’s squad fought back to score 10 of the following 14 points to win 25-23.
In the first round of the competition, there was a significant gap in the efficiency of passes between the US and Russian teams. To defeat the USA squad, the Russian team must maintain composure throughout the game.
In three games, the USA team defeated France in the opening round. They were, as was expected, superior than their rivals on offence and defence, but it needed a lot of work to overwhelm the French team. The excellent physical condition of Anderson and Sander will be very helpful in the upcoming encounter.
The U.S. squad is seen as the betting favourite for the forthcoming game after such a performance. Of course, some could disagree, but the USA squad is unlikely to lose without scoring with such a superb defensive and receive performance.
In four sets, the Russian team defeated Argentina. The team’s offensive managed to score less points than their rival at the same period. This can firstly be attributed to the team’s subpar receiving performance. Unfortunately, Erik Shoji and Micah Christenson are both stronger in their positions than Golubev and Kobzar, therefore the power dynamics in the game with team USA will remain the same. Because the American team has an equal receiving advantage over the Russian players, bookies predict that the USA team will win the match.
