Angelo Lorenzetti (coach Casa Modena): “Macerata is a level above us, they have improved a lot compared to when we met them. We want to build on what we’ve done in Cuneo, we’ll try never to give up and always play with dignity. This is an intense and exciting period: we have to be extremely focused on court. Our goal is to get into the top 6. That would allow us to avoid the 8th of final and have an extra period of work which is important for a team like us. It’s always great to play in this arena.“
Ivan Zaytsev (Cucine Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “Modena and its fans in the PalaPanini arena, which will probably be packed, represents a great opportunity for us to show we’ve totally recovered from those four days in which we lost the top spot and were knocked out of the Champions League. It’s a tough game but crucial to stay high up in the table, we have no choice but get a result and focus exclusively on this game. Lorenzetti’s team is extremely dangerous, you could see that when they beat us at home in the first meeting. We can’t get it wrong this time.“
