Leandro Vissotto (Bre Banca Lannutti): “We had our chances in the second and fourth set to seal the game but we failed to take them. At the end we started to be tired physically and things became more difficult, we did not manage to come back in the tie-break. We’ll just have to travel there and go for it”.
Cristian Savani (Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “I am thrilled, shattered but happy. We have given everything, we have shown character and technique. I had said after Thursday’s game we needed to play more as a team and tonight we’ve done it. Obviously, things are more complicated without Parodi, who’s not back to full fitness yet. Our offensive game is more predictable, but we did a good job”.
