Alberto Giuliani (Wixo LPR Piacenza): “On tonight our middle blockers struggled and also the hammers had some troubles in putting the ball on the ground. Verona is living a great moment, they are in great shape, and in this game they were better than us. We wanted to have a better game with a better result, but we are looking for the rest of the season, trying to clich a playoff spot”.

In second we stepped up and we won the set. In fourth wewe had the chance to close the game, and we did not took advantage of it. I’m happy for theattitude of the team, especially in fourth”.
