Matteo De Cecco (ass coach Marmi Lanza Verona): “This is an important game for us, three more points would secure our stay in the division for the coming season. Monza is a tricky team to play, they have good players, they can even do the turnover. We’ll try to make it difficult for them and keep playing like we’ve done of late. We are more confident compared to the first time we met. We have built around the quality of our spikers: they have consolidated their form as the season wore on and now we are more aware of our potential, we know we can play face to face with them”
Emanuele Zanini (coach Acqua Paradiso Monza Brianza): “Verona is a very dangerous team. They took 11 points in the second half of season, one more than us. They have great potential, experienced players, one above them Meoni, an example of professionalism and evolution. A player that learned the jump serve at 37 years old, never done in many years, not even when he used to play in the best Italian teams or with the national team. He’s really an example for everyone. An important player for this team but they have other quality elements like Marcus Popp, Robert Kromm, Mitja Gasparini, all top class foreign players. We’ll need to play at a high level if we want to win. We’ll need focus and consistency”.
