Galatasaray coach Ekrem Memnu
"We knew it would be a tough game and it was so. We were well prepared for this fight and we controlled most of the game. In the end we made some mistakes and there was a lot of emotion. I'm happy that we won, because we have problems with injuries. We have a balance of 3:0, and this is a very good starting point before the next matches. I would like to congratulate the CCC for the acute struggle throughout the match.
CCC Polkowice coach Jacek Winnicki
"I was hoping to win this game. We were very close, but did not succeed. The final outcome was decided primarily by defence. We focused on Anna Wauters and Sancho Lyttle. It was risky, but it worked because we had more rebounds, and gained more points in the paint. Wauters had a chance to win this match, but in the end the ball did not fall into the basket. That's sport. It's hard. We must continue to work to become an even better team. "
Galatasaray player Sazyie Ivegin
"At this level, every game is difficult and so it was today. It was critical defence, as evidenced by the low score. We were able to win and we are very happy. Polkowice is a strong team, so greater is the joy of winning".
CCC player Valeriya Musina
"A pity that we could not win today. Galatasaray is a very strong team, but today we had a chance. In the end, unfortunately we could not get to the basket. It is always hard to lose games at home. We need to focus on preparing for the next matches. I hope that in Istanbul we will be able to enjoy a win"
