Lausanne, Switzerland, June 13, 2018 - Italy need a full-points win
Wednesday at home in Eboli against Belgium to keep their hopes alive for
a ticket to the Final Six of the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League -
though this depends on what Turkey and The Netherlands have done earlier
in the day in Stuttgart. Italy have not dropped a single set to Belgium
in five previous encounters at world level (though Belgium did win the
last time the two met at the 2013 European Championship).
