Hemofarm Stada
"We had three away matches in January and the team is exhausted. Jagodnik is injured and couldn't help us with his great international experience. Galatasaray is a better team and we couldn't follow them in quick play and good concentration. It's important that we passed to the next round and no matter if the rival is strong and weak team we can win if we are in good shape."
OZYER, MURAT
Galatasaray Cafe Crown
"We didn't play well in defense until the last period and couldn't stop players like Marshall and Joksimovic. We returned to the game in the last period when we played with two big players and dominated in defense and three-point shots. We had 32 points in the last period and that decided the match."

"It was an important game because we ended this round in the second place. We didn't start well, especially in defense and allowed Hemofarm to score so many points. In the last period we improved our defense and decreased the goal difference. We had 32 points and won."
