Antonio Ricciardello (BCC-NEP Castellana Grotte): “In the game against Verona we should see the progress made of late thanks to the hard work done in the gym, which led to the victory over Modena. We’ll look for maximum points again on Sunday. We believe we can win this second game in a row, this would be a great result for us. They will try to turn things around as they’re going through tough times. They probably did not expect to be so low in the table. We have to put them under pressure from the start with the serve, we know they can struggle in reception, and we’ll also have to stay focused on our game”
Bruno Bagnoli (coach Marmi Lanza Verona): “We carried out some excellent training sessions this week, there was a good spirit, we’re convinced that if we play well all together we can beat them again like in the first leg despite the fact Castellana is playing well right now and will be the favourite at home in a crucial game for the playoffs positions. Only Rak has been training on his own because of the knee problem that forced him to miss the Perugia game. Hopefully, he’ll be able to play Sunday, he’s important for us”.
