Turkey and Brazil face off on the last day of competition in the FIVB World League Final Round in Ningbo on Sunday.
Both teams are still contention for the title but they could only achieve their goal if the United States loses to China in its last match.
The Americans lead the table with 11 points followed by Brazil (10) and Turkey (9).
Turkey is coming off a 24-26 25-22 25-23 25-21 win over China. Eda Erdem Dündar and Gozde Kirdar Sonsirma paced the Turks with 20 points each.
Brazil, meanwhile, swept Thailand 25–20 25–23 25–14. Sheilla Castro led the way with 13 points while Fernanda Rodrigues added 11.
"I think it is very good to see how Thailand improved in recent years. I watched their match against China yesterday, Thailand had very good performance," Brazil coach Jose R Guimarae said.
"About our team, we played with pressure. In the second set, the Thais served very hard, we made many mistakes in reception. In the third set we played better. I am happy about three points, but first and second sets were not easy for us."
