Pierre Vincent, Bourges coach:
"This game was a difficult one due to the complexity of all the information coming from the game at the same time, which demands a lot of concentration by the team. The difference was that we used strategy while the Russian team used their ability in the shooting department.
Anaël Lardy, Bourges player:
"The lesson learnt from this match is to concentrate more on the defensive drives to not let the opposite team come back when our team holds an advantage."
