Monza in the cup
Never beyond the quarter-finals
Daniele Bagnoli (coach Casa Modena): “This double header against Monza looks like a playoff with two games in three days. That’s when you need experience and concentration, we need to make the most of the mistakes we made, then start for scratch and react. Having said that, we’ll need to play much better because on Sunday we played well under our potential. Besides, Monza is in great form, they can play excellent volleyball. We’ll need to improve on the break and serve. We have to focus on ourselves and believe that we can do much better”.
Emanuele Zanini (coach Acqua Paradiso Monza Brianza): “One single game for a qualification, the context will make it a totally different game than Sunday’s. Modena plays extremely well at home, they have great support from the fans. Hopefully, we’ll have everyone available, and Rooney back, even if he will not be hundred percent fit. We prepared the game very well, we’ll see what happens on court. In the last league game against Modena, you could see the improvement of the team, they played with more consistency, there is a positive basis to build on for the Cup game. We are extremely motivated, we can make it in Modena too”.
