Defending champions Brazil brushed aside Italy 25-15, 25-22, 23-25, 25-17 on Saturday to set up a much-expected clash with Cuba in the final of the Men's Volleyball World Championship, Xinhua reported.
Vissotto scored a match-high 24 points for Brazil followed by Dante and Murilo with 16 and 10 respectively, while Alessandro Fei led Italy's attack with 20 points and Luigi Mastrangelo added 12.
In order to retain their titiles, Brazil will have to beat Cuba, a young team who beat them 3-2 in the first round of group.
"Today we played an excellent match, and I loved the support from the fans. We played tactically better than the Italian team," said Brazil captain Giba.
"But now we have to slow down and regain our concentration because Cuba is a strong team which is playing at an extremely high technical level," he said.
Brazil won the match because they made fewer mistakes, said their coach Bernardo Rezende.
"Since both teams were basically at the same level, whoever made less errors would have won the match," he said.
Now the Brazil must make sure their players regain fitness prior to the final, said Rezende.
"Our setter Bruno was injured during the match, and some other players have some physical problems. Right now I must concentrate on recuperating these key players since the final with Cuba will be a true battle," he said.
For Italy's top scorer Fei, their early mistakes cost the whole match.
"We were nervous at the beginning of the match and made several mistakes. Unfortunately, all these errors compromised the whole match," he said.
