Lausanne, Switzerland, July 18, 2017 - Italy clash with Turkey Friday in
Bangkok in what is the tenth time the two sides come head-to-head in an
official world competition. Italy have dropped just one of the previous
nine encounters - a 3-1 loss at the 2014 FIVB World Grand Prix in
Kaliningrad. Italy have recovered from losing their first two games of
the season, with a four-match winning streak. But Turkey have remained
at 1-5, after their only win this year, over winless Belgium.
