Will Brazilian teams play the final for the 7-8th place? I expected more from them, Praia couldn't even take advantage of Novara playing with Arrighetti
Well Minas are noticeable weaker than last year. Their OHs transfers still make no sense to me, so these results were expected. But I'm still surprised why people expected so much from Praia. Both of their setters are pretty unimpressive, Garay is underperforming big time, Fawcett has never been a huge powerhouse, Martinez is their only reliable attacker. With the likes of Conegliano, Novara, Vakif and Eczacibasi I think their postion was pretty obvious..
However I agree, they should perform better than this
