The usual Smartsystem home version did not give Casarano any discounts, transforming the match against the Apulian team into little more than a formality.

Everything went perfectly on the court, especially in serving, which was fundamental in which Fano only made nine errors compared to eight aces.

One of the protagonists (3 aces for him) was the young Federico Roberti, highly applauded when coach Tofoli replaced him after the match had already been decided: “We started off strong straight away – states the class of 2004 – we wanted to make up for the misstep in Sorrento. We were more organized and good at always keeping the opponent behind in the score.” Fundamental decisive joke: “Not only me – continues Federico – but also Merlo and Michalovic did well. For us it was important to return to play a good race in front of our fans.”

Middle blocker Gabriele Maletto admits: “We had prepared the match in another way – states the Piedmontese – thinking that they would be more aggressive, but tonight our serve made the difference. We managed to keep the setter away from the net, preventing them from playing easily.”

It was important to work on the mistakes made in Sorrento during the week: “Indeed – concludes Maletto – we worked to limit the mistakes made against Sorrento and I would say that we succeeded”.
