Latvia vs Norway Match Preview
Norway’s pair of Mol and Sorum has been sensational at the Tokyo Olympics. After putting up impressive performances in their pool clashes, how they have handled the pressure in the knockouts proves that they are here to win big and they won’t be cornered by anyone.
Moreover, the way they thrashed ROC in the quarter-finals without much trouble shows the kind of form the duo is in. On the other hand, the Latvian pair of Plavins and Tocs has defied all odds to make their way into the top 4. They were under a little bit of pressure in the quarter-finals against Brazil.
However, the way they attacked the Brazilian duo simply bamboozled them and left beach volleyball fans in awe. Although Norway had a few lucky escapes, their quarter-final win was no fluke and they will back themselves to progress into the final clash.
