Marko Podrascanin (Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “As second of the regular season, we’ll face this group as favorite, but we’re certainly not afraid of the pressure. No matter who are favorite, we’ll have to play with maximum determination both against Verona and Monza in order to qualify. We have no margin for errors, we really want to go all the way”. 

Emanuele Zanini (coach Acqua Paradiso Monza Brianza): “We’ll be up against Macerata and Verona. We want to reset everything with our mind free of any consideration for past and future. Macerata is obviously the favorite, they are at home and finished second in the league. In any case, we’ll need our best both against Verona and Macerata to try to prevail. We have to be ready for two very tough games”. 

Robert Kromm (Marmi Lanza Verona): “We have had a good season and we could have secured a playoff spot earlier, but now is time to focus on those new encounters. We’ll have nothing to lose, Macerata are the favorite and that’s precisely why we’ll be able to play loose and go all out. They have the court advantage and they have a great serve, as for Monza they have a good all-around game with good blocking ability and some experienced players like Gavotto. But we’re strong too, and we are extremely eager to have a go at it. I am sure there will be some entertaining, open and interesting games”.
