Triumph Lyubertsy Head Coach Vasily Karasev
"It was a tough game. The key was our good first half. Our main problem was the lack of rotation at the wing positions. We had to put less on defense, because Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada has very good outside shooters. I loved the atmosphere the Spanish fans created, I really appreciate that attitude. With that atmosphere it is always easier to play."
Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada Head Coach Porfirio Fisac
"The game had two very distinct parts. Our game model is in the work we have done in the third and fourth quarter, where we defended with appropriate defensive activity. We are being too generous with rivals at home. We must be more constant in our work during the game. We will be faithful to our philosophy to the final offensive team playing and fighting back all together on defense."
Triumph Lyubertsy player Artem Kuziakyn
"It was a great game. We won mainly thanks to our great defensive work in the first half. It is always a pleasure to play against a Spanish team. Playing in a vibrant atmosphere always makes you give the best you have. In the second half, the Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada shooters generated us many problems. We return to Moscow with high hopes of winning the match on Thursday and qualify for the Final Four."
Mad-Croc Fuenlabrada player Leo Mainoldi
"We paid dearly for our poor start in the game. They have taken a good difference and then managed it wisely. They also played with confidence. In the second half we played much better, especially on defense. Nobody likes to lose at home. We will work hard to turn the anger at the defeat today in a good game on Thursday."
