The Head coach Fernando Benitez Munoz stated: "We knew how difficult our mission was. In the first set, we did not start as usual and it took us a little more time to find our rhythm against a very strong team like Modena. In the next two sets we played better, we fought but we couldn't claim any more. It’s a very strong team, with some of the best players in the world and a lot of experience. We tried to press them and claim the qualification and these two games are very useful for us to improve for the rest of the season."
