Lausanne, Switzerland, June 13, 2018 - Italy have no chance any more to
qualify to the Final Six of the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League when
they host Brazil Thursday in Eboli. Italy's fate was sealed on
Wendesday, when The Netherlands and Turkey registered deciding wins in
Stuttgart. Brazil have won 30 of their previous 37 encounters with
Italy, with the last win of the Europeans dating to 2011 at the FIVB
World Cup. This is a rematch of the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix final,
which Brazil won in five sets.
