Pierre Vincent, coach Bourges:
" It was the hardest Eighth-Final I've ever lived. Tonight we won against a great team of Brno with terrific players. Zirkovà came back [from injury] and she did great things during the game. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, our players stayed focused and stayed calm so we controled the end of the game. We have chosen good tactical options. Katarina (Manic), Cathy (Melain) and Céline (Dumerc) were so good tonight and even if some of players were not on the same level, it's the team who won tonight."
Milan Veverka, assistant coach Gambrinus Brno:
"It was a great game but for the last five minutes, [when] we didn't score. We were not able to prepare clear shots. Zirkova kept the keys of the team tonight but Bourges are unbeatable at home especially with a Dumerc being fantastic."
