MVP: Vlad Davyskiba (Vero Volley Monza)

Simone Giannelli (Sir Safety Susa Perugia): “I’m very sorry. This was our final, we wanted to play another one, but the pitch decided so. We won it anyway and wanted to bring it home, but sport like this. It was an important match, I don’t want to find an alibi, we had to finish it in the fourth set. We have to treasure this experience and build for next season.”

Massimo Eccheli (coach Vero Volley Monza): “Returning to Europe was an important goal for our club, which we set ourselves from the start of the season. In the first set we struggled to get into the game. From the second set we freed ourselves a bit, we understood that we could hold the match. On the pitch we had the right attitude, and in the end it went well. Over the course of the season we have found the strength and balance to also respond to the injuries that have somewhat conditioned our path, closing the second round of the championship very well. We have always worked seriously and we have presented ourselves to these Play Offs to qualify for the next Challenge Cup in an adequate manner”.
