Head coach Davide Mazzanti opted for a starting six comprising setter Valentina Serena, opposite Annamaria Quaranta, outside hitters Francesca Piccinini and Elitsa Vasileva, Iuliana Nucu and Valentina Arrighetti as middle blockers, plus libero Enrica Merlo (pictured). Scavolini PESARO lined up setter Francesca Ferretti, opposite Serena Ortolani, outside hitters Alexandra Klineman and Mareen Brinker, middle blockers Elisa Manzano and Berenika Okuniewska and libero Monica De Gennaro.

Volley BERGAMO caught a flying start setting the pace all the way through in the opening set (8:4, 16:12 and 21:15), going straight up to the end without losing composure. The second set was much tighter with a neck-to-neck race that paved the way for an exciting final rush. BERGAMO opened the gap pretty quickly in the third set (8:2) and eventually sped up to score a speedy 25-22 for a 3:0 home victory.
“This is a very important victory” commented head coach Davide Mazzanti. “It was very important to take this match tonight and we are happy with the result. We had a good start with the spikes of Quaranta, but also Arrighetti and Nucu registered good efficiency in attack. I hope we will play like this also next week in Pesaro”.
MVP of the match was Annamaria Quaranta, best scorer with 16 points (67% of efficiency in attack) including 2 blocks and 2 aces.
