Match Report

An easy win for Italy

Article 22 August 2021

If a team scores only four points by means of their spikes in a set, it is pretty obvious that they are facing very dominant opponents. That was the case in the matchup Hungary vs. Italy. Hungary started the first set with a lot of respect for their Italian colleagues and managed to score only 14 points (4 in attack - 2 in block, 2 with aces), including eight resulting from Italian mistakes. Even when they did not play at full speed, the Italian girls were dominant, so their victory in the end was very well deserved (25-16).

 

The second set was not much different from the first one. A routine game for the Italian girls who managed to record a 25-15 win in 23 minutes only. Hungary’s Polish-born coach Jakub Gluszak made a lot of changes within that set, trying to find more responsive and braver players, but without much success. On the other hand, Davide Mazzanti, the Italian coach, did not make a single substitution.

 

In the third set, Hungary managed to take the lead 6-5, but the Italians would not hear of it and punished their opponents with a run of eight points in a row for 13-6. At 18-11, the Hungarian coach called a time-out, trying to break the Italian pace, but it did not help much, as Italy closed the set and match at 25-19.

“It was not easy to stay focussed for the whole match. We did not know much about Hungary and their players, and they surprised us a number of times because they served really well. I have not watched much of Croatia’s matches this far, probably one set only, but I am sure that we will be ready for that match when the time comes.”

Miriam Sylla
Captain of Italy

“It is always an honour to play against a team like this, which is one of the best in the world. We came here to just really have fun and enjoy the game against some great opponents. I am really happy that we had a really good service, we served tough and we got some aces. We also had some blocks, which is great against tall girls like the Italians. Of course, I wished that the game would be a little bit longer, but still I am pretty happy with how we played.”
