Paolo Torre (Altotevere San Giustino): “We have to get back to taking points after four consecutive defeats. We can’t afford to make more mistakes, it will be crucial to stay focused on every point of every set until the end of the season. This should be a real battle on Sunday. Derbys are always played with maximum intensity, physically and emotionally. We’ll have to be concentrated, they are the most in-form team of the league right now, they’re playing top quality volleyball, they managed to make it hard for some of the best teams and they won’t give us anything. On our side, we’ll have our fans and our determination to bounce back, and we will give everything we have”.
Andrea Giovi (Sir Safety Perugia): “We’re preparing the San Giustino game well, this will be an extremely difficult game, not only because of the atmosphere there will be there, the derby is always a particular game, but also because of the quality of the opposition, they have been getting better and at home they always play at their best. Still, we’re confident, we believe in our technical and tactical ability, we work hard every day, we’ll be ready for the fight to try to get a good result for our fans. What does the derby represent? Well, I was born here so seeing two teams of my region in the Serie A1 is something very nice, it’s the pride of the Umbria region and that shows volleyball is growing here”.
