Simone Roscini (ass coach Fidia Padova): “This will be a battle, Belluno is coming off six wins in the last eight games, they have improved a lot compared to the beginning of season. We’ll have to play with heart, this is a team we can beat. We’ll have to keep their setter under control, he is the one that helped them step up in my opinion”.
Roberto Piazza (coach Sisley Belluno): “We’re in good shape right now, but I’m not totally satisfied yet. We have to get rid of our lapses which can cost us dear, we need to seal the games when we have the chance to. We can do even better with more consistency, it would be nice to find that consistency as we enter the most important phase of the season. But I am confident, the boys are training well with focus. This game will be a hard-fought one, it was not easy against them earlier this season, they’ll be dangerous at home. We should not be fouled by their result against Modena, they stayed in the game much more than what the score says. We need a top performance to extend our positive streak, maximum concentration in this derby and no distractions. We’ll start thinking of the Italian Cup only from Monday”.
