"We have been working hard analysing the video-tape of the game Dynamo Moscow Region versus Dnipr and have found the effective way to destroy the Ukranians' tactics. I am glad that our foreign players did very well, especially Filho, who scored few points, but helped the team a lot."

"My team didn't fulfill the task for the game. We just couldn't score our shots from the field. We will try to learn this lesson and play more decently at home."
