It was not an easy match for the Kitchens Lube Civitanova the 3-1 win against Monza, and it is the third time in a row that the champions of Italy and Europe are forced to fight. The stresses Bruno Rezende: “In the Italian championship, if you do not put all the energy and his will to win, you don’t make it“.
“Today we started very focused and aggressive, says the setter of the brazilian – but we knew that from the other side of the net there was a team that plays well, with great talents. In the third we gave up a bit mentally; the same in the fourth, the nervousness has forced us to play point to point. Knowing how to suffer is one thing that you learn, we’re happy with the three points and is especially important to the growth of the team an injection of confidence in view of the World Club”.
Has suffered also Osmany Juantorena for the injury that kept him to the box for a few games: “It was complicated, but I’m glad to be back on the field. Monza is a team that plays well, has a lot of players that can make the difference. We were good to close it in the fourth set, the team is growing. Each player that enters gives you a hand, and this is the added value of our team. Tenth consecutive victory? The wins are good and give us the right energy to face the games of the Club World cup. This is the last race of the year in the house, we can expect a December fire but it is fair to think of a trip at a time, until the end.”
Look forward to the ds Beppe Cormio: “The ten victories serve to the championship, not at the Club World cup where we will play with some physical problem that worries us, especially for back pain that have characterized the performance of some of the players tonight. The 29 points scored in the Superleague so far, we’re absolutely delighted, of course. We knew we had to deal with all these races in a short period of time, the team is equipped to be playing with almost a second string sextet, and we try to retrieve all the better players, in spite of the long journey that awaits us on the way to Brazil”.
For Monza, instead, talks about the central Gianluca Galassi: “it was a Pity that the fourth set and sin for the first two. We could play better and approach better the race from the point of view of physical and mental health. If you do not carve immediately to 100% is difficult to play against teams like that: they put pressure on the service and the wall. We have been able to find a thread of the game, but in the end it was not enough. We will not be happy of this race, even if there are good things to save. Now we have to go to the gym to work hard because we’ll have another big match against Modena, where we will try to give all that we have. That guidance has given us this race? That if we play as we know we can give discomfort at all.”
