Como o Cruzeiro teve a melhor campanha da fase de classificação, chegou nas semifinais com a vantagem nos mandos de campo. O Cruzeiro, que tentou não deixar os anfitriões se distanciarem, cresceram durante o período. "As duas equipes se conhecem muito bem, e sabem de seus pontos fortes e fracos".

O levantador Uirarte, do Cruzeiro, foi eleito o melhor jogador da partida. "Cabe a nós ter a concentração sempre em alta e fazer nosso jogo funcionar".

O jogo 5 será realizado na sexta-feira (20), às 21h30, no Ginásio do Riacho. A partida será transmitida ao vivo pelo SporTV.

No primeiro jogo, em Contagem (MG), o EMS Taubaté Funvic venceu por 3 a 1. A equipe mineira queria evitar a derrota temida e acabar sendo eliminada, enquanto o time paulista, por sua vez, entrou no confronto confiante na classificação.

O segundo set acabou sendo o mais equilibrado e decisivo do confronto.

"A série semifinal é longa, difícil, e agora é voltar para casa, descansar e se preparar para o quarto jogo".

No duelo dos opostos campeões olímpicos no Rio-2016, Evandro, do Sada Cruzeiro, estará do outro lado da rede com praticamente a mesma consciência. Comandados por Filipe, destaque da equipe celeste na primeira parcial, os cruzeirenses viraram o jogo e conquistaram a vitória por 25 a 23. Eles estão na casa deles, diante da torcida deles e a pressão toda sobre o nosso time. "Temos que jogar como no último jogo, ou além disso".

Para jogadores e comissão técnica, apenas na terceir a partida os pentacampeões da Superliga conseguiram mostrar seu verdadeiro vôlei, o que, se repetido hoje, pode assegurar a igualdade e adiar a definição.

A decisão será contra o Sesi-SP, que na outra semifinal, bem mais tranquila, passou pelo Sesc-RJ por 3 a 0. Tanto individual quanto coletivamente, o que não falta na equipe do Barro Preto é o costume de lutar por títulos e fazer partidas decisivas, muitas vezes saindo de placares desfavoráveis. O único ausente é o ponteiro Lucarelli, que por causa de uma cirugia, atravessa a Superliga sem poder atuar pelo Taubaté.

O técnico Daniel Castellani deve manter o time com: Rapha, Solé, Ivovic, Dante, Otávio, Wallace e o líbero Thales. Começariam no banco: Renan, Lucas Madalóz, Rafael, Paulo Renan, Ruiz, Nícolas e o líbero Matheus.
