Lampre: After the forfeit of Alessandro Ballan, the captain will be Mirco Lorenzetto. He is supported by Marco Bandiera, Emanuele Bindi, Enrico Gasparotto, Francesco Gavazzi, David Loosli, Manuele Mori and Daniele Righi. Sports director is Maurizio Piovani.
"Ballan's forfeit damages us," Piovani said. "But the team is strong and we can rely upon Lorenzetto, who showed during the last weeks to be in a very good form. Gavazzi, Gasparotto and Mori will be ready to join the attacks, while Bandiera, Bindi, Loosli and Righi will give us the usual support."
Ceramica Flaminia: Maurizio Biondo, Wladimir Duma, Cristiano Fumagalli, Dainius Kairelis, Leonardo Giordani, Alessandro Maserati, Enrico Rossi and Filippo Simeoni. Directeurs sportifs are Giuseppe Petito and Massimo Podenzana.
The directors are banking not only on Italian champion Filippo Simeoni. "We have Enrico Rossi as our man for the final, together with Cristiano Fumagalli. We will protect them until the decisive phase. Then those two will enter in the game for the win."
