Personal Time won the first match of the quarter-finals away. The Venetians won 3-1 and now await Lagonegro in the return match which will be played at PalaBarbazza on Saturday at 6pm: “I liked the team a lot – comments coach Moretti – and I congratulate all the boys who played a great match. From what we saw on the pitch, Lagonegro is the team with the highest level of defense of the entire season. I told my players to be patient in all the plays.”

The Venetians have secured the first point of the series: “I see continuous improvements, winning away from home on that pitch was difficult for everyone, it was difficult for the first in the standings of their group; the second place lost. Ours is no small feat. I have always believed in my boys, they have all the potential to do well. You just have to be aware of your own strength.”

Personal Time is already in the gym preparing for Saturday’s match: “Game two will be another great battle, Lagonegro does not hide the objectives of doing well and moving up in category. We will have to be good at stopping their individuality.”
