Alberto Giuliani (Cucine Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “It’s not been difficult, but we had had a negative week, it was nice to come out of it this way. We unfortunately lost Parodi in the warm-up, we have to check what the problem is, in the meantime we got Savani back to full fitness. Unfortunately, that’s the way things go this year, we can’t seem to be able to have everybody fit at the same time. There was a great crowd today, we’ll do everything to have an excellent end of season and they know it. We have three important games left in the regular season. We have to focus exclusively on ourselves because we might have to invent ourselves another unprecedented line-up”.
Nicola Pesaresi (Marmi Lanza Verona): “It was obvious Macerata was much stronger than us. We faced this game with our problems in the middle. The score says it all, we unfortunately could not do anything more. Still, I was born in Macerata and came up in this club so playing in this arena in front of so many friends was a great feeling”.
