Lille, France, July 6, 2018 - Russia and Brazil clash for the 66th time
in history Saturday in Lille for the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League
semifinals, with the series well-balanced at 33-32 in favour of the
reigning European champions. But Rio 2016 Olympic champions Brazil have
not lost a semifinal in a world competition in eight years, since their
defeat to USA in the 2008 FIVB World League. This is a rematch of
Brazil's four-set win over the Russians in Ufa, during pool play.
