Petko count on Ivan a lot, but when he has perfect reception he uses his middles, as it would be a crime on this sport - not using Marko. Berruto knows that and told Zaytsev to play option, like our commentators use to say. Petko did what he has to do and ta-da: compulsory set in this situation became "incredible"

Yes, I have been witness to a play where the other team was so sure the setter will not set to the opposite, that the side blocker become a middle blocker and the left side hitter had to play on nice double block and they blocked him.

NightFox, noticing the holes on the opponent’s block is one of the roles of a setter – they get paid to do that. Zaytsev took a risk and things went wrong – sometimes the coaches tell their players to do it and assume full responsibility. Once Petkovic noticed Zaytsev was blocking the middle, doing the rest was easy, not impressive at all.

True Henrique, but it's more mistake from Zaytsev I think

Okay, Petkovic is a good setter, but there’s nothing special on this play. Pay attention, kids! Let’s suppose you’re a setter. The opponent has served, your team received it so well... Now it’s your turn, the ball is coming to your hands... You noticed the left side of the other team is too close to the middle, he surely expects you to set your middle player. So, their position four is an open road. The obvious choice is... Set someone where there’s no block. So did Petkovic. Very simple! Again, he’s a good setter, but even a mediocre one could have done this.

Keep watching volleyball, kids. ;-)

it was after a big out on single block by Nikić, and Italians don't even think that next ball will go to him. but anyway, nothing changes that it was nice set
