Luca Tencati (Copra Elior Piacenza): “In the third set we made too many mistakes and Sala’s superb block did not allow us to close the gap on Modena. Credit to us for believing in our chances and for playing with confidence”.
Matteo Martino (Casa Modena): “We have been too sloppy, while they have really played well with excellent serving and attack. Congratulations to Piacenza, they really deserved this win. We have to work hard before the coming games”.
