The result of this game will already influence the chances of both teams to make it out of the Pool phase.
While VK Modranska can be happy with the point they took back from their trip to Russia, Volero suffered a home defeat to Atom Trefl SOPOT of Poland. PROSTEJOV is therefore going into this game more relaxed than their Swiss opponents.
“We delivered a very good performance in Russia and even though we are not yet in a great shape, still we showed off our strengths in Kazan. This is mainly due to the great individual play delivered by Sanja Popovic, Helena Horka, Monika Smak and Anna Velikiy, but also our team work is progressing. We have to win this home match with Volero as this may open the way for the next phase of the competition” says head coach Miroslav Cada.
Middle blocker Michaela Monzoni, who joined the Czech team only a few weeks ago, is confident that her side will be exploiting the home advantage: “This will be a great help for us and the support of our fans, combined with the fact that we do not have to travel abroad, will ease up our task. Even though the opponent is strong, still Volero is not Dinamo. We all know there are no easy matches in the Champions League but this time we have to win” she singles out.
