Even though tomorrow's match is more important and we were thinking of our opponents, we did pay enough attention to today's match.”

“Today's match was a little strange,” Sesi Sao Paulo captain Murilo Endres said. “The first set we played quite well, but couldn't find the right rhythm for the remaining sets. The Italians have a very strong team, which can definitely make the difference.”
