BRZ vs USA-W Dream11 : USA look to maintain their winning run when they take on Brazil today in a match which promises to be an edge of the seat thriller
Defeating third placed Netherlands yesterday, USA ended up handing themselves a massive favour as they went onto further hammer themselves down in second place, right behind China with the two sides remaining the only two sides to yet taste defeat. Up against Brazil today, USA know they have another tough test coming their way, a match which will test their resolve and perseverance as they look to emerge unscathed once again.
What impressed against Netherlands yesterday was not just the fact that USA went onto win without dropping a set but how they went onto grow into the encounter after the opening set. Pushed to their limits as they scraped through 25-23, the ensuing two were more comfortable with USA cruising to a comfortable 3-0 win to make it four wins in succession at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Cup.
Elsewhere, Brazil with the one defeat in four matches find themselves in 6th place, a position they’ll be looking to boost themselves from today. In what is arguably their trickiest and stringiest face off till now, the side who defeated Netherlands 3-0 in their last match will be well aware that the slightest of slip ups defensively would turn out to be adverse to their chances of a win.

BRZ-W vs USA-W Match Prediction
This match is by no means a foregone conclusion with Brazil being more than mere pushovers, a side whose attacking acumen will make things jittery for USA on the day. However, unfortunately for them, USA have shown their ruthlessness in killing off sides perfectly and should do so once again today with their hitters functioning extremely efficiently in tandem.

BRZ-W vs USA-W Dream11 Libero
We are choosing Brazil’s Leia Silva as our libero for this encounter due to two reasons. Unlike the liberos from USA, Silva is ascertained to play a majority of this encounter and the blocker has shown her ability to receive the ball perfectly along with ensuring that she lays it up finely in the path of the setter to act as the building block of her side’s attacks.

With 107 running sets in the showpiece tournament up till now, USA’s Jordyn Poulter has been an integral part of her side’s successful attacking displays, not only coordinating with her hitters sublimely but also sending the ball perfectly both their path to allow them to register digs at ease.

Whilst USA have been flawless up till now when it comes to the attacking facet of their game, the contributions of their defensive segment can’t be neglected. The blockers have ensured that the side have remained unperturbed infront of the most relentless of attacks, using their guile and trickery to send back shots and pull off well cued blocks for the side.
With 8 stuff blocks and 22 rebounds, Chiaka Ogbogu has lead her side’s defence and up against a formidable Brazil unit, she’ll be asked to position herself right infront of the net to pull off blocks today as well.

Althouhg USA have kept shuffling their players around given the immense depth in their pool of players they have at their disposal, the hitting positions have stayed relatively safe from this rhetoric. Kelsey Robinson is bound to play a majority of today’s match with the right hitter having shown immense accuracy in exploiting the open areas and vacant space to get 39 attacking points till now.

The two players are chosen by us over here, the one from either side with us choosing USA’s Karsta Lowe as our first pick. Having being rested by her side yesterday, she should be back for this one with her 37 attacking spikes making her a crucial player for USA at the tournamnet.
Elsewhere from Brazil we have decided to venture in with Lorenne Teixeira, a player who has been asked to play a role in both attacking and setting up play, seeing her get 45 attacking spikes and 7 sets till now.
