Homend Antakya head coach Hakan Acer
"Dynamo is a good team and a challenger for victory in the EuroCup. We did not have a leader, she has a minor injury. Our team played well, but we missed a lot on offence. We came here to win and in the second leg we will do our best to be stronger."
Dynamo Kursk forward Natalia Vodopyanova
"We knew they would not have their leader. But they still brought us a lot of trouble. It is important to be able to win under such tough conditions. I was wishing to feel that spirit for a long time. It was not our best game, but we fought for every ball."
