Marco Meoni (Marmi Lanza Verona): “We played decent volleyball for two sets, then we faded. Our team is not used to play such important back to back games. Still, this remains a positive season for us, given that our target was to stay up, which we did”.
Emanuele Zanini (coach Acqua Paradiso Monza): “I decided to leave De Cecco and Conte on the bench at the start because they both have minor physical problems. We played a good game, we had some nice blocking, and we handled well the various situations we had to face. At one point, their level dropped and we did well to take advantage. Tomorrow, though, if we want to beat Macerata, we’ll all need to play at 101%”.
On tomorrow’s game:
Alberto Giuliani (coach Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “The favorite won it between Monza and Verona. Monza even tried to rest a couple of starters, probably for tomorrow’s game. It will be a very tough game, Monza is undoubtedly a top quality team. Maximum determination needed to reach a very important target for us”.
