Bergamo 'very sad to lose this way' - Piccinini

Italian opposite Serena Ortolani struggled this afternoon for most of the game against Brazil's Sollys Osasco

Francesca Piccinini, Bergamo captain: “I am really sad because this afternoon we never got into the game, we were not able to find our rhythm or to set the pace of the game. We came here to make it to the final and it is very sad to lose this way.”

Davide Mazzanti, Bergamo coach: “Technically speaking, we had a lot of problems with our first touch, i.e. in defence and reception. The block did work pretty well but with such a poor performance in reception we were not able to complete our side-outs. We came here to make it to the final but now we’ll focus on the classification match against Mirador. We still want to make it to the top three and as soon as we go back to Europe, we’ll have a tough job to qualify for the next round of the CEV Champions League and to compensate the false start we had in the national league where we lost two out of three games so far”.

Carolina Albuquerque, Osasco captain: “We are happy with this win even though there were too many mistakes. Our performance was not optimal but still good enough to make it to the final game.”

Luizomar De Moura, Osasco coach: “As for the final game with Fenerbahce, we hope for a much better performance than in the prelims where we lost 0:3. If we reduce our mistakes, I think we may play a good game, although we are aware that this is a fantastic opponent.”
