The answer needed to be immediate. And, a few hours after Italy’s defeat, Brazil responded in the best possible way. Against Serbia, another opponent at the time, the appointment of José Roberto Guimarães did not provide an opportunity for a new fall at Nilson Nelson’s gym, in Brasília. Strong from the start, the team overturned the opponent by 3 sets to 0, sections 25/21, 25/9 and 25/21.

Too bad on the pitch against Italy, Brazil secured their victory this Sunday through a barrier. On Saturday, it was only five points. Against Serbia, the selectors scored 19 matches in total. Carol, and six, Kisy and Pri Daroit, and five each, were the highlights.
In overall results, Gabi, Pri Daroit and Kisy, with 14 points, were the best scorers. Carol, 13, followed closely behind. Bjelica, on the other hand, with eight points, was the main name of the powerless Serbia.
The highlight of the match was the presence of the Italian national team players on the training ground. Even without a game scheduled for this Sunday, Paola Egonu and other allies insisted on watching the match between the two main rivals in the League.

Set 1 – Stable, Brazil starts at the front
Kisy’s error even opened the calculation on the other side. But, in need of a touchdown in the League, Brazil came to court with another position. It was the beginning of equality, it is true. But, unlike the previous day, the nominee knew how to take advantage. In Gabi’s shot, he scored 8/5 and opened the gap immediately. Barriers, ineffective against Italians, also emerged. That’s how Kisy rode to stop the Serbian attack and score 10/6.

In a moment of carelessness, Serbia responded with a withdrawal, narrowing the gap to just one point (10/9). But it was short-lived. By touching the Bjelica net, the results rose to 14/10. Opponents even threatened to retreat at other times. The choice of house, however, remained consistent. On Kisy’s block, he scored 20/16 and distributed the victory in a set. Finally, the block from Pri Daroit issued the final numbers: 25/21.
Set 2 – Brazil treads and expands the lead
After returning to court, Brazil gained momentum. Without breaking a sweat, he soon scored on the board: after another Kisy block, 8/1. At the time, Serbia seemed powerless. In Carol’s two consecutive barriers, profits jumped to 19/8. Elections are not limited. With a hit from Kisy, he widened the gap to 20/8.

Brazil played loosely. In the chaos of the crowd, he did not give up at all for any response. Blocking was the team’s main weapon at the time – before the end of the episode, it already had 14 points. Finally, Ace from Carol closed the account: 9/25.
Set 3 – Serbia play hard, but Brazil score
Serbia wanted to respond after returning to court. At first, he started forward and opened 9/6. But Brazil went in search of it. In an attack of opponents, everything is OK on the scoreboard. The turn came when Pri Daroit blocked it, opening 13/12 on account. The game remained balanced. But, even in the worst of times, the selection remained consistent.
In Diana’s block, the selection closed 17/15, and the gymnasium exploded. Serbia even tried to stay in the fight. But, by authority, Brazil established itself. From then on, he never gave his opponents a chance. In the Gabi attack, it opened 19/16. It didn’t take long for the home team to score: with another shot from Gabi, 25/21.
