Alen Pajenk (Calzedonia Verona): “We played a good game, sometimes the numbers and the statistics lie. We put in trouble such a great powerhouse as Modena. We improved down the net, but we will needto improve in attack and in the break. I’m not so happy of my performance, I touched alot of balls but I’m not happy. Looking forward Trento, we will try to be ready, will be a great game, we will need to keep high the rhythm and the focus”.

Radostin Stoytchev (Azimut Modena): “In first set we suffered in reception, in second we reacted, being aggressive for all the rest of the game. This is a very important win, next sunday we’ll have a big game versus Lube, we respect everybody, fearing no one. Ngapeth was great he can and must play this way, if he doean’t play this way we fine him”.
