Deja vu of 2004 final for Italy and Brazil

Lausanne, Switzerland, August 5, 2017 - Italy and Brazil clash Sunday in Nanjing for the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix title. They come head-to-head for the 27th time in the history of the competition, with the South Americans leading the series 22-4. This is a rematch of the 2004 World Grand Prix final which Brazil won in four sets in Reggio Calabria. Brazil and Italy also finished 1-2 in 2005 in Sendai, although that year there was no final - just a final round-robin pool. Brazil are after a record 12th title in 25 World Grand Prix editions. Italy seek their first gold after picking up two silver and four bronze medals.
