Roberto Piazza (coach Sisley Belluno): “I am extremely happy with the three points and result, a little less for the third set which we started badly. We have been too relax after the first two set won. This is a dangerous attitude. Good job we reacted, fought hard and took the three points after that against a team that did not start well but then showed all its quality. We have three more games to play, starting with Trento, three key games for our playoff position. We can still improve, we have got better and better recently and I can’t see any reason to stop just now”.
Samuele Papi (Copra Elior Piacenza): “The pre-game was a great feeling, I’d like to thank Sisley which I’ll always have in my heart, I didn’t expect such a welcome, that was really a great emotion. As for the game, we started terribly, while they did very well in the first two sets. We reacted and with a little bit of luck we might have been able to force a tie-break. If I have to find something positive, I’d say the reaction from the second set on, which is what proves us we are still in good shape. Shame our winning streak ended, but that can happen against such a good team, the important is to have shown we were alive tonight too, even on a day we did not play our best volleyball”.
