Argentina vs China
Round 2 in the National league and a match between the hosts of China and Argentina.
I wrote a little about the format and the group this week that is held in China. If I have to be honest at this time USA are with the best team and they are a little bit stronger than Argentina, Bulgaria is the third stronger team in this group and China are the outsiders for sure.After the brilliant comeback from the USA, Argentina will be disappointed for sure and also much more motivated for two wins against the hosts of China and Bulgaria. They were leading 2:0 sets and with three points difference in the end of the third set, but Jeffrey Jendryk on service, supported by Benjamin Patch in attack succeeded to turn the third set and then the match. I watched both matches in this group from the 1st round and Argentina will be too good for China, I am sure about that. China can't stay equal in the result in comparison with Argentina. They will start with the mistakes in receiving or in attack like they did against Bulgaria and Argentina can use that much better than our our national team.
We won the 1st set against China without much efforts, but in the start of the 2nd set started with the unconvincing display in attack and receiving, combined with mistakes on service and that gave wings to the Asians who use that in the next two sets. We made some changes till the end of the match with Uchikov and Saganov instead of Bratoev and Yordanov and the comeback happened. Argentina have amazing players who can play brilliantly block outs in hard situations, while our team can't do that and that was the reason China to make over 10 blocks against us. They also have much better receiving than use and make less mistakes from service. Argentina are without some of their main stars in China like Rodrigo Quiroga, Luciano De Cecco and Sebastian Sole, but still have amazing replacements who can win matches like Ezequiel Palacios(top scorer against the USA) with 17 points together with Pablo Crer-also 17 points. Martin Ramos had also a good match against the USA scoring 15 points.
I don't think Argentina will repeat the same mistakes like ours and will give any chance to China. If the Latinos drop a set, it will be max one, but I doubt they will do it. 3:0 or 3:1 for Argentina is my prediction here and -1.5 Sets AH has an amazing value for me, which I can't miss.
