Brazil easily beat Canada in the Nations League

The selection returns to the court this Friday against France and ends its participation in this phase against the hosts on Sunday. All matches are broadcast on the sporTV channels.

Brazil now have 21 points (seven wins and three losses) with fifth place overall. With 22, the United States, France, Italy and Poland occupy the first places. Since the last two teams still enter the court this Thursday and can stand out in the table. USA and France faced off earlier with a 3-2 win over the Americans, partials 15/25, 25/22, 22/25, 25/14 and 15/8.

The top eight advance to the final in Bologna, Italy, July 20-24. Behind Brazil, Japan has the same number of victories as the national team. The Netherlands have six, Iran have five and Slovenia and Serbia have four. With four of the six teams occupying the last places in the next phase, only a very unlikely combination of results could knock Brazil out of the quarter-finals at this stage.

Brazil had a convincing performance against the Canadians. From the first point of the match, the young Darlan gave a glimpse of what would happen after a small start. Even before the selection opened 3/0 in the first set, Leal felt his ankle after the attack, but it was just a scare. In the streak, the game was more balanced, with the Canadians looking for Leal himself in the offensive actions. With a few receiving misses, Brazil saw Canada retire at 8/7.

Then came the role of Bruninho with his great variation in ball distribution. With Flavio falling very well in the middle, Renan Dal Zotto’s men once again opened up a four-point lead at 12/8. And from there, it only remained to launch the attack of Isac and the counter of Flavio, which closed the first partial on 25/18.

In the second set, Isac was once again the antidote to the Canadian reaction. In two moments when the opponents opened up a three-point advantage, his pass on serve was the differential. The player served very well, disrupting Canada’s passing line at 3/0 and 12/9. Until 14/14, the game was balanced. However, in the home stretch, Brazil’s technical superiority was once again evident. The selection closed the set after two touches in the lifting of Canada and the blocking of Isaac.

The third set only crowned the excellent performance of the titular sextet, formed by Leal, Darlan, Lucarelli, Flavio, Isac and Bruninho. Brazil’s top scorer with 15 points, Leal returned to the game in the partial, dropping his arm above the Canadians. And so the set that seemed more balanced, played point by point at the start, brought Brazil out to wrap up 25/16.
