Brazil utilised their middle and right-side hitters to score in clusters, while Iran did not have a good side-out game. Even though the Asian side found their rhythm to tie the score, Brazil still scored the last three points closed the opening set. Brazil used the same attack strategy, but implemented better defence that provided additional opportunities to counter-attack. The game plan worked for Brazil to secure the straight-set win.
