Cristian Casoli (BCC-NEP Castellana Grotte): “We face a team with great champions who know exactly what to do, we will try to give our best right now and we will do everything in our power to give hard time to the Italian champions. It will definitely be very tough for us but we will leave no stone unturned, as has happened in Cuneo.“
Dick Kooy (Cucine Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “For us it is important to start the year with a victory, because the goal is to grab the first place and to continue with the wins. In Castellana we certainly expect a tough game, because we are going to face a team back from a major achievement, which can now count on the support of their home crowd. We must remain focused throughout the game, and especially with the service right from the start.“
