20.46: That’s all for tonight, thank you for following us and see you at the next matches for the Azzurri. Have a good evening!

20.44: three wins and four defeats for the Azzurri so far. Play-offs that go away even if there are still five matches to go until the end of the round robin. Tonight at 11pm Italy will face Germany and now Retornaz and his teammates can only win to continue hoping for qualification

8.42 pm: a one-way meeting ends here. Superior Koreans in everything, blues always in trouble, not very precise and determined to counter the game of the Asian team. It ends 10-5 for South Korea

20.41: Two more points arrive for Korea in the ninth end: 10-5 for the Asians who can already celebrate their fourth victory

20.38: Impeccable Koreans until the end: two Korean stones at the point when the last two pitches of the ninth end are missing

20.34: Blue stone at the point after 10 shots

20.30: A Korean stone in point after the first 4 pitches of the penultimate end

20.26: The magic fails in Retornaz who must be satisfied with marking a point. The Koreans remain firmly in command: 8-5

20.23: Nothing to do. The Koreans play great and score when the last pitch is missing where Retornaz will not have much room for maneuver

20.20: A blue stone at the point when the last four pitches are missing. There is only one Korean stone in the house against the three blue ones. You can try to make a good booty

8.13pm: Central guard and stone at point for Korea after 4 shots of the eighth end. Side guards for Italy

08.08: Koreans don’t miss a beat today! Right shot that slightly pushes away the blue stone that was on point at the penultimate shot and allows Korea to score two points. The Asians who return to +4: 8-4 are playing with the protractor

20.04: Point for the Koreans when the last two pitches of the seventh end are missing

19.58: A blue stone in point after eight pitches of the seventh end

19.51: Great double rejection of Retornaz who somehow tries to put the blues back on track! Three points arrive for Italy who shortens the gap and is now 6-4 down after six ends

7.49pm: Blue Stone on point after 13 pitches. Retornaz must try to shorten the distances consistently

19.42: Korean double stone at the point after seven pitches of the sixth end. The Koreans are able to enter from all sides and the Blues are unable to vacate the house

19.36: Nothing to do again a stolen hand, this time from two points of the Koreans. The Italians can’t find easy things tonight, let alone the difficult ones. The Asians are ahead 6-1 after five ends and for Italy to get back on top is very hard

19.31: Very complicated situation for the Azzurri who are not playing a good match. There are two Korean stones at the point when Retornaz’s last shot is missing and he will have to try to fail them both to shorten the distance

19.23: House still crowded as the Koreans like and blue stone in point after 11 pitches. It takes precision now to collect the maximum

19.17: Two Korean stones in point after the first 5 pitches of the fifth end

19.12: Red alarm in the blue house. Another mistake by Retornaz in the attempt to score two points by knocking the Korean stone to point. Shot anything but simple, it must be said, that he fails and therefore a hand stolen by the Koreans who lead to 4-1. We need to quickly reverse the course of the meeting

19.08: A Korean stone at the point when the last 4 pitches are missing. The Asians are very good at evading the blue guards and very precise so far. a little less the blues with Mosaner who failed with the rejection in order to place the blue stone at the point

19.04: Blue Stone at the point after eight pitches of the fourth end

18.58: Low guard on the right for Italy, Korean stone in point after four shots of the fourth end

18.56: Nothing rejected for Retornaz and Korea scores three points that launch it into a clear advantage: 1-3

18.54: Three Korean stones in point after 14 shots, Retornaz’s magic is needed to free the house from the opposing stones, all very close to the center. Rejection risky but not impossible

18.53: Situation overturned with two Korean stones at the point when the last three shots of the third end are missing

18.47: There are three blue stones to point after seven shots of the third end

18.42: Blue stone at the point after the first 5 shots of the third end

18.37: Retornaz fails in a house crowded with stone, Italy is forced to take the point and goes to lead 1-0 after two ends

18.33: The error of the Koreans on the attempt to promote the guard, now there is an Italian stone at the point when the last three shots are missing, therefore the two of Retornaz

18.28: After 10 pitches there is a Korean stone in point but surrounded by blue stones

18.22: Busiest house in the second end. There is a Korean stone in point after 4 pitches

18.16: Hand canceled, the hammer remains with the blues

18.12: Failure and counter failure, we go towards the cancellation of the first end

18.09: Blue stone in point after the first 4 pitches of the opening end

18.05: The meeting begins, hand for Italy

18.01: Italy fields the typical formation with Simone Gonin, Sebastiano Arman, Amos Mosaner and Joel Retornaz and with Mattia Giovanella reserves, while the Dutch respond with Kim Hak Kyun, Seong Se Hyeong, Kim Chang-Min and Kim Soo-Hyuk.

17.58: The blues are awaited by a complicated challenge. Often the Asian teams have made Retornaz and teammates suffer in the past and therefore a great test is needed to give the Azzurri a success that could prove to be fundamental in the race for the conquest of the play-offs

17.54: The path of the Koreans has been in flux so far: defeat with Norway, surprise victory with Scotland, defeat with Denmark, success with the United States, defeat yesterday afternoon with Finland, victory in the night against the Czech Republic

17.49: Last night the Azzurri were defeated against the Canadian title and yesterday they lost against the Netherlands in an unexpected way. Fortunately, the victory against Denmark has relaunched them in the race for the playoffs

17.45: Good morning to the friends of OA Sport and welcome to the live live of Italy-South Korea, seventh match of the blue adventure of the round robin of the 2022 men’s curling World Cup
