“We have lost against a top class team, the best we’ve met so far” said coach Luigi Schiavon. Unterhaching is indeed the vice-champion in Germany and will take part in the Champions League this season. “In the first set we played face to face and even went ahead 24-21 but then they used their experience and had a couple of lucky plays that helped them turn things around. We have not been as brilliant in the second and third set”.
