Novica Bjelica (M. Roma Volley): “We’re in the same situation as Piacenza last season. We can’t seem to find our rhythm and we’re totally lacking confidence. Besides, Piacenza is physically very strong right now, they can beat anyone”.
Luca Monti (coach Copra Elior Piacenza): “Roma was too inaccurate in attack, they did not manage to get back on track once we created a gap. They kept chasing, while we did well to escape on the scoreboard with Zlatanov first and then with Nikolov, they are champions and were both crucial for us”.
