Nikolaj Tanasiejczuk, Dynamo GUVD coach:
"That was a great game. Nantes is a very good team and they proved it tonight. We were very tired, we didn't sleep a lot, the trip was too long so I think it's easier in that case to be the home team. But my players played a very good game, they fought well. Finally Nantes won it but in two weeks the roles will reverse."
Natalia Myasoedova, Dynamo GUVD:
"We missed a lot of shots in the first half because we were tired I think. But I think we fought well against a great team."
Emmanuel Coeuret, Nantes Rezé coach:
"It was a really great game of basketball with two good teams. Nikolaj Tanasiejczuk was very strategic with his zone defense. Each time we made an error we were made to pay, that's why I'm proud of my team. They never gave up despite the comeback of Novosibirsk. Our goal is to win our three home games. I'm a little bit disappointed about the goal average. I want to insist on the very good game of Gunta Basko. She was decisive. I'm happy for her."
Sarah Michel, Nantes Rezé:
"It was a difficult game against a team who have a lot of big players, but we knew it. We didn't begin well. This was our fault. We tried to make them commit errors and we succeeded. Fortunately their defense was worse than their offense, so we made some good shots despite the zone defense. It is good to win before a big game against Montpellier on Saturday."
