Quotes Sparta&K MR Vidnoje vs. UE Sopron

11.03.2014

Igor Polenek, Uniqa Euroleasing Sopron coach:

"We played very bad and without doubt we were not mentally up to the challenge today. I would like to congratulate Sparta&K who played very well and which fully took advantage of our bad day. Now we are down 0-1 and we have an uphill battle. We have to work on some aspects of our game so that we may play them on an equal basis."

Sara Krnjic, Uniqa Euroleasing Sopron:

"We really expected to play much better than how we did today and that is disappointing. While our defense was not terrible it was not enough to stop them. We missed a lot of shots which we usually make. We definitely have to do something different Friday to be a better opponent and able to fight for a win at home."

Alex Vasin, Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje coach:

"What was important in this game was to not underestimate our opponent. We had to respect them especially since in many aspects they are similar with us. My players worked hard these days and in this game did exactly what we asked them to do. We expect that Friday Sopron will be a much tougher opponent and that they will try harder for a better result. It is now up to my players to once more prove that they deserve to be part of the EuroLeague Final 8 in Ekaterinburg."

Natalia Vieru, Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje:

„Our coach and his staff did a really great job in showing us exactly what we had to do in order to beat Sopron. In the meantime we made sure not to underestimate our opponents and we played hard. I am very proud of our team and while I know that on Friday Sopron will play tougher at home I believe that if we play as we played today we will start packing for the Final 8."
