Gianlorenzo Blengini (coach Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia): “Tonight we struggled to play at a high level of intensity, it’s not been one of our best performances at all. It was not easy after the game we played yesterday, emotionally too. It’s not been as interesting a game as yesterday’s, we’re still a bit disappointed with the way it ended against Cuneo, we had played one of our best games”.
Hristo Zlatanov (Copra Elior Piacenza): “We needed a good game and we got it. We started off slow this season, then we improved, now we’ll see what happens tomorrow. It will be a real in-or-out final. There is a lot to lose for both teams, although Cuneo will have more pressure than us”.
On tomorrow’s game:
Leandro Vissotto (Bre Banca Lannutti Cuneo): “We have to play more as a united group. We’ll need to be more of a team against Piacenza than on Saturday against Vibo. We’re not doing our best and definitely not playing our best volleyball. So far we only had individual performances here and there, we lacked the understanding in the team. We’ll have to find it tomorrow from the start if we want to win and go to the semi-finals”.
