Luca Monti (coach Copra Elior Piacenza): “We needed to get to know our opponents to get organised a bit. This is why we had a slow start in the first set. We took our foot off the pedal too much at the end of the third set but the important thing was to win it 3-0. At 11 all in the third, Fei destroyed their reception but Minsk remains the strongest team we’ve met so far”.
