Andrea Giani (coach M. Roma Volley): “We played three good sets, with the first two lost by the minimum margin. There has been a good reaction in the third, with Bencz doing a good job of settling immediately. In the fourth, we lacked energy to complete the come-back”.
Bruno Bagnoli (coach Marmi Lanza Verona): “Given the situation we’re in, I have to say the boys have been fantastic. We played a good game against a team that is having evident difficulties. Now we have to get better and get the players back to full fitness because we had a few players training with major physical problems in the last few days. Special mention to Postiglioni, which helped us win the first two sets with his serves. He really deserves the congratulations”.
