Daniele Bagnoli (coach Casa Modena): “Modena and us, we have different targets, but both very important. They want to be mathematically safe, while we’re looking for the best possible position for the playoffs. The 3-2 win in Latina was crucial, even if, given the quality of the play, we should more be talking about a point lost. Anyway, I liked the will not to give up, we’ll need this fighting spirit. We have been showing some good things in recent games. Unfortunately, we’re really missing Yosifov and Kooy, both in training and games. We have to keep giving everything we have and take as many points as possible. Unfortunately, the fourth position is almost impossible, we’ll probably play the quarters away from home, we’ll need to get there at the best of our form. Verona? Well-organised team, with a couple of specialists on the serve, they managed to beat teams like Cuneo and Belluno. And they have Meoni, probably the best setter in Italy inside the three meters. We’ll need good serving and overall play with extreme focus and intensity”.
