Beretta Famila Player Giorgia Sottana
"We made our biggest mistake in the first half of the game. We played soft and it never works against such a strong team like UMMC. In the second half we played stronger on offence and did well. No matter what, we must stay positive."
Beretta Famila Head Coach Miguel Martinez Mendez
"Congratulations to the local team for the good game. They played really well especially in the first two periods. On the other hand we were able to show a EuroLeague Women-level game in the second half and that is very important for us."
UMMC Ekaterinburg Player Sandrine Gruda
"It was a very interesting game and obviously not everything went the way we wanted. I am happy that we won, but we still have a lot of work to do. It is good to be home and play a EuroLeague Women game at home especially after the last one was not so fortunate for us."
UMMC Ekaterinburg Head Coach Olaf Lange
"Tonight we saw a game of two different halves. In the first part we were aggressive, shot the ball extremely well, acted tough on defence and I enjoyed the game. In the second half we lost our aggression and initiative and I am disappointed with the result. Nevertheless the positive thing was that we saw how good we can play at home and now we need to combine two halves together and try to keep our aggression for all 40 minutes."
