Alexandros Raptis also stood out, closing his match with 14 points scored. At 7.30 pm on the Consoli Sferc Brescia and Delta Group Porto Viro pitch.

For Consar Ravenna the main diagonal is made up of Mancini and Orioli, the spikers are Raptis and Feri while the central defenders are Bartolucci and Grottoli, with Goi libero.

Mattia Orioli (Consar Ravenna): “It was a difficult match, we expected it, we were without Alessandro Bovolenta. We all did well, credit to the team, a great match. We did well in the first set and we worked well on defense, it was a great team match. Marco Bonitta’s hand can be seen a lot, we worked a lot this week with the three spikers. Today the understanding with the setter also went well, we have been working together for some time. We are waiting for our fans, we are here, we will give our best.”

Andrea Mattei (Yuasa Battery Grottazzolina): “Ravenna’s merits are on the management side, they kept us on every front, they were united from the first point. There is a lot of regret on our part, honor to them. There was a moment when we expected things to come by themselves and that wasn’t the case, Ravenna held the game on every front. Maybe we missed the approach to the match, we let the second set slip away while in the first and third sets Ravenna was very strong on serve. Thinking about the promotion to the Super League it is clear that we are still talking about it even though a few days have passed, we had to put the icing on the cake, we will try to do it in the Super Cup. We will try to be more careful in training, also because we will play it at home.”
