Laszlo Ratgeber, Spartak Coach:
"We had to have a very good game in order to beat Prague and we will have to have an even better one in order to survive the upcoming battle in Prague. I would like to thank all my players, especially those who battled some injuries and gave 100% today. As always the justified the two stars that are on their uniforms."
Diana Taurasi, Spartak Player:
"It is always nice to win the first playoff game, especially when it is against a good team like Prague. It is a shame that only one of us will be able to reach the quarterfinals. We know that the game in Prague will be a great game but I fully trust my teammates and coaching staff."
Lubor Blazek, Prague Coach:
"I am proud of my girls but even though they tried there best, for many reasons (height difference etc) we lost to a very good team. We will be more ready in Prague and hopefully we will be back for one more shot to qualify."
Evanthia Maltsi, Prague Player:
"Spartak Moscow Region is always a tough opponent especially at its home court. We tried but today our effort was not enough to bring the desired result. But I am confident that we will return for a third game."
