Only four teams remain in contention for the inaugural FIVB U-23 World Championship title in Brazil.

The first semifinal features host Brazil against Russia.

The Brazilians topped Pool A with 14 points after winning all their five matches. They wrapped up their group campaign with a 21-18 21-17 21-11 sweep of Tunisia.

Rafael Araujo is the focal point of Brazil's attacks. Helping him in the offensive chores are Matheus Cunda and Lucas Eduardo Loh. Setter Thiago Veloso and libero Guilherme Kachel are also expected to play quality minutes.

Russia, meanwhile, finished runner-up to Serbia in Pool B with 12 points on a 4-1 record. 

Leonid Shchadilov, Ivan Komarov and Bogdan Glivenko will spearhead Russia's offense. They should get support from Alexander Safonov, setter Dmitry Kovalev and libero Aleksei Kabeshov. 

The winner of the Brazil-Russia clash will take on either Serbia or Bulgaria in tomorrow's final.

The Serbians ruled Pool B with a perfect 15 points from five matches. 

Aleksandar Atanasijevic will once again lead the Balkan powerhouse. Other offensive options for Serbia are Uros Kovacevic and Filip Stoilovic.

Bulgaria, meanwhile, secured the final semifinal spot after beating Argentina 21-16 16-21 21-14 21-15 in their final Pool A match. 

Jani Jeliazkov and Nikolay Penchev are the one-two scoring punch for the Bulgarians.
