Flavio Gulinelli (coach Bre Banca Lannutti Cuneo): “This is a very important game for us. It’s fundamental to bounce back immediately after the defeat against Verona. We’re coming off a long road game in the Champions League but we got the result we wanted and secured top spot. This gave us a boost. Vibo is a very dangerous team, they have obtained interesting results in the first half of season. They have been unlucky to lose the setter Coscione, but they found a good solution with Serafini who greatly helped them to get a win last Sunday. Besides, they have a top class Dutch outside hitter and other excellent players. We can’t underestimate them”.
Gianlorenzo Blengini (coach Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia): “Despite Sunday’s defeat in Verona, Cuneo is a team that will fight for the league title with Trento and Macerata. They have a lot of quality, and not only in the starting six. Besides, they’ll be at home just after a defeat. There are all the ingredients to make sure Cuneo will get on court up for it and ready to fight for their lives. But we’ll give it a good fight too”.
