Italy vs Poland Match Preview

Five years ago at the 2016 Rio Olympics the pair of Nicolai and Lupo had clinched the silver medal and they are proving why they are the strong medal contenders this time again. Though they faced a stiff challenge from Germany in their opening match which they won 2-1 (21-19, 19-21, 15-13), the Italians got into the groove and breezed past Japan in straight sets 2-0 (21-19, 21-16).

On the other hand after claiming a handsome victory over Japan in straight sets 2-0 (21-15, 21-14), the Polish team succumbed to a much fancied Germany 0-2 (20-22, 16-21).
