Youness of Saronno 6 Rather severe race management, a few yellow cards could have been spared. Strictly apply the regulation.
Diana, Rhodense technician: «There is a bit of disappointment because I wanted to win and we had a chance to do it. A bit of our imprecision and the skill of their goalkeeper prevented us. I expected the ball to run a little faster and instead we gave them time to get behind the ball line“.
Varricchione, coach of the Settimo Milanese: «I am very happy with the performance, the guys did everything we prepared during the week. Staying ten changed our plans. However, especially in the second half, we conceded little. After the cooling break we tried to go man on man and we kept everyone under the ball“.
