Brazil serve and block-defense was awesome.If they keep this way, they can do it.

But we still have no powerful attack :wacko:

We don't face Russia in an important tournament final match since 2002 World Championship. That will be interesting :thumbup:
probably 3:0 or 0:3 is coming :rolll: :dance6:
You are right. The last time we met Russia a week ago, it was an 3x0 :D

I hope it will be Bulgaria....I don't want Italy to win as they have been playing crap with the exception of the ITA vs. USA match. Italy cannot maintain the level of play so they may lack some confidence and Bulgaria has enough arguments to defeat them.

Besides the provocation, I believe that Russia is a better team than Brazil.

BUT AS I SAID BEFORE, that doesn't mean Russia gonna play their best in the final match :whistle:

Congratulations for Russia's team and all Russian users here! :win:
Russia are definately a really strong team , I think they are in a very good shape for the tournament and actually they are my favourite for the gold. Yes, we lost the match, but we also had our chances during the game. Unfortunately our serve wasn't well - too many errors, today def wasn't Sokolov's best day, also our reception wasn't stable enough and we got too many direct points from aces, BUT I'm glad with the attitude and the fight spirit that our players demonstarted, it was great to see them rising up after the smashing 2nd set and getting back in the game! I think that we will go in the match for the bronze medal very motivated and in a fighting mood, I really want us to finish our olympic adventure with a medal :)

As for the other semi, Italy disappointed me, I kinda feel 'misled', if I may use this epithet, cause I expected much much more from them after the QF against USA, but....Brazilians were simply increddible in this match, no doubt! :obey:

Interestingly enough, Russia has never won the Olympics (at least as Russia) and the United States women's team never achieved Olympic title. Will this weekend's finals make the difference? :roll:

Russia has very good players but they have always lived some problems at high level .Actually reaching the final is a great succes for Russia.They have the power to beat Brasil but bcz of some mental problems they may not show their full perfomance.If they beat Brasil then this will be a great turning point for Russian male volleyball and they can be more succesful with this start in the future.

Beruto is a good coach IMO! You need a better opposite and a setter!

Exactly. I don't get it. He's milking the best out of the team.

About the semis... I think Brazil did a very good job against Italy. I don't know, you guys. I'm thinking it's gonna be really really hard to take this gold away from Brazil. You can see the fire in their eyes. I'm not confident Russia has the same drive. Everything's coming together for Brazil, it's like a sort of redemption, after every business that happened in the past, with Ricardo, and Bernardo's relationship with the guys, and everything. And Brazil's a bad match for Russia. They usually underperform against Brazil. I think this is gonna be a very tough, balanced match, but I just give the edge to Brazil. And have to disagree with rugby about Russia being the best team in the tournament. :P

I think, also, bronze medal match will be exciting. Bulgaria is the sensation of the tournament - like Korea was among the girls - and I just hope they have the best attitude to grab this medal. I wish USA was a contender, but they just couldn't keep their consistency. I think Italy is not that good. Berruto strives for the best, but the roster is limited. Lasko and Savani are not world class attackers, and Zaytsev felt the pressure of yesterday's match way too much. So, I think if Bulgaria keeps the momentum they have up for them, they should prevail.
