Paolo Montagnani (coach Fidia Padova): “We played with quality today, and at the end of the day the quality always has the better. The attitude of the boys was perfect despite the fact we had a lot of pressure on this week. Simeonov and Gonzalez trained twice in ten days and they still have to get back to full fitness”.
Bruno Bagnoli (coach Marmi Lanza Verona): “We did not manage to contain Padova as we would have liked and I was particularly disappointed with the third set. We are not certain at all to stay up, there is a long way to go before we can say we’re safe. Now we have to bounce back”.
