Hubert Henno (Bre Banca Lannutti): “The only thing that matters now is the win, the rest does not matter. We had time to prepare ourselves, now it’s time to play. No need to talk anymore at this point of the season, we just have to play. On Monday, we’ll have to get on court and win the game”.
Manuel Coscione (Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia): “We had so many problems this week. First Klapwijk was out, then Falasca had a problem on his feet, he played with pain tonight, and now Rak’s injury. The positive thing is that we gave it a good fight, but we’re a bit disappointed not to have forced a tie-break. Credit to them. A bit disappointed but we know we have done our absolute best”.
On tomorrow’s game:
Luca Monti (coach Copra Elior Piacenza): “There was a lot of pressure on court today but that’s normal when there is so much at stake. When a game is that important, with no chance to redeem yourself, it’s always tough. It will be difficult again tomorrow, there will surely be a lot of pressure on too”.
