Osmany Juantorena (Itas Diatec Trentino): “It’s been a fantastic year for our club: it would be great to seal it with a win, especially at home, but we’re mentally ready for a battle. We have to stay focused, there can be surprises during the Christmas period. It would really be bad to fall now because two points of advantage on Macerata are not really reassuring if we want to be top at the half way point of the season”.
Bruno Bagnoli (coach Marmi Lanza Verona): “Each game has its own story. We’ll try to do well in Trento and get something out of the game. The league and past experiences teach us that all the games are open, we just have to play with confidence, even if we know well we’ll have an extraordinary team in front of us. If the reception and serve are not of the usual standards, there could be surprises”.
