Dragan Travica (Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “We knew we needed a huge performance without Omrcen (disqualified following a yellow card in the last game) to beat Cuneo and I think tonight we could not have done any better. This proved to be a near-perfect team performance, I was even a bit surprised, given that we only had yesterday to try out various tactical options. Serve, block and dig are what makes volleyball and tonight we played at our best in these fundamentals. And we had the patience required because we knew we could have difficulties, the important thing was not to put our heads down. Now we’re going to Milan aiming not to finish second”.
