General remarks about the team and about the playing-style

·         Very good team performance: there were no players in top-3 of the players ranking lists of best scorers, setters, servers, spikers, diggers and liberos.

·         Murilo was second of best receivers (eff. % 69.11) and Rodrigo was no. 3 of best blockers (26 kill-blocks). Murilo was MVP of the tournament.

·         Stable starting line-up.

·         Good performance in Complex I and Complex II.

·         Athletic good developed players.

·         Very good (quick) attacking and good blocking and defense performance.

·         Technical and tactical adaptation in individual playing actions.

·         Efficient and fluent playing.

·         Emotion based motivation.

·         Effective playing structures with quick setting.

·         Good combination of universal playing abilities and individual strength.

·         Good application of modern scouting information.

 

Serve  

·         All the players have one standard skill: jump float, jump spin or jump power serve

·         Sometimes tactical variation of serve positions.

·         Major goals are: tactical effect, no direct point, let the opponent make the errors.

·         Good tactical adaptation to subsequent block/defence situation.

 

Serve reception

·         Stable and secure reception, only sometimes instable.

·         Three players in reception formation.

·         Murilo seems to be more important in reception than libero Mario.

·         Before the ball passes the net receivers are in good position.

·         In case of jump spin serve by opponent: starting position of the players is deeper; when the ball is played, often impulse control or punch technique (side- and backwards) is used; the arms of the service-passer move to the floor.

·         Variants of all other reception techniques are used: 3-point-reception, lateral, jumping

or falling forward, backward and sideways.

 

Set/Attack - Complex I and Complex II

 

Block and Defense

·         Efficiency and good organization of team blocking.

·         Tactical adaptation of blocking based on statistics and tactical analysis of opponent.

·         Different step variations, blocking position adapted to the playing situation.

·         Good level of block performance: kill blocks and rebounds.

·         Fast, strong and skillfull middle blockers, securing tactical tip balls as well (2nd phase block action).

·         Efficient cooperation and synchrony in movement of the blockers and diggers.

·         High level of individual and team performance in defense (digging and emergency skills).
