Adriano Paolucci (M. Roma Volley): “This will be a particular game between two teams knocked out of the league playoffs. Belluno will be more disappointed than us considering the season they had and the fact they were beaten at home. As for us, this is a positive achievement to be here playing in the semis for the Challenge Cup, which is a good International competition. We have had a difficult season, but we still managed to make the playoffs as 8th. Taking part in the Challenge Cup would give a meaning to this season”.
ITA A1: Sisley Belluno – M. Roma Volley
Oleg Antonov (Sisley Belluno): “It’s obviously not the semi-final we expected but we’ll have to face it with the same determination with which we’d have played Trento. We want to fight and take part in this European competition. The game against Roma will be tough and tight. It’s not surprising that both regular season games ended at the tie-break. They have quality players and Roma has always been a tough opponent to play against”.
