Mihály Kormos, head coach of Swietelsky BÉKÉSCSABA: “While we were preparing for this match, we knew that this would be a major highlight of the season. The girls played incredible tonight, as they followed the tactics we had agreed upon and brutally used the opponent’s mistakes to their advantage. In Békéscsaba, miracles happen in front of 1,500 people!”

Andriy Romanovych, head coach of Khimik YUZHNY: “We followed our tactics but Swietelsky BÉKÉSCSABA was well ready for us. We could not play as well as we did in Ukraine last week. Good luck to Swietelsky for the next rounds.”

Yenisei KRASNOYARSK (RUS) vs. Nova KBM Branik MARIBOR (SLO) 3-0 (26-24, 25-19, 25-13)

•    The start of the match was not that easy for either of the teams – with Yenisei edging ahead before MARIBOR caught up and had a four-point lead at 24-20. However, with the help of Natalia Nazarova, who scored three aces in the end, Yenisei came back and won the set 26-24.
•    Yenisei set the pace of the game from the early stages of the second set (14-10) and extended their advantage towards the end, with the Russian team securing a 25-19 win.
•    Yenisei continued to play well in the third set as well and MARIBOR asked for a timeout when trailing 0-5. The break did not change the course of the game as Yenisei outclassed their opponent in every aspect of the game to claim a 3-0 victory.

Alexander Koshkin, head coach of Yenisei KRASNOYARSK: “I am not happy with today’s game as not everything went the way we wanted. We made many mistakes in reception and it surely was not our best match. I am nevertheless happy that we won the first set after coming back from 20-24 down.”

Samo Miklavc, head coach of Nova KBM Branik MARIBOR: “I would like to congratulate Yenisei on their victory. They are a very good team and to play them was an excellent experience for my team. I am not too satisfied with our game, as we should have played better. We had a chance in the first set but we missed it.”
