Venezuela challenge Australia for ticket to final

Lausanne, Switzerland, July 19, 2017 - Australia host Venezuela saturday in the second of the two Group 3 semifinals as the two sides come head-to-head for the very first time in an official competition. Australia scored a historic win on the opening weekend over Trinidad & Tobago - the Aussies' first ever (and so far only) in four years of competing in the FIVB World Grand Prix. Venezuela, on the other hand, are 4-2 this season, having lost only to the two undefeated sides of Group 3 - France in five sets and Hungary in three. Venezuela, who dropped their latest match to Hungary, have yet to lose back-to-back in the competition.
