Bourges head coach Valerie Garnie
"We started the game very well with very good defence and attack during the first two periods, but it's important to maintain this level of defence and it was more difficult at the end of the second quarter and beginning of the third quarter."
"We maintained a good level during all the game even if we had some dificulties due to the good defence of Madrid. As explained by the coach of Madrid, it's easier when Celine [Dumerc] plays her best play but I was happy to have all the players at 100% . As coach it allows me to change the players and to control the game. This game is a reference for us and we will build on it."
Bourges player Pauline Krawczy
"It was a pleasure to play this game, everybody plays very well and the team was very strong. Now we will continue to work in order to play all our games like this one. Personally, I'm happy to perform well today and to help my team.
Rivas head coach Miguel Martinez Mendez
"It was a dificult game, when we fail to make shots and when we don't control the leadership of Celine [Dumerc], it's impossible to win the game. We used to score 82 points per game, so scoring only 49 points in this game, I can not be happy. But it's always a pleasure to play in Bourges in this cathedral of basketball"
