Dragan Adžić, coach of RK Krim Mercator: “Congratulations to the visiting team for an excellent second half. Unfortunately, we could not keep up the rhythm from the first half, we had no answer to the 5:1 defense. We expected a demanding match, and I take responsibility for the outcome. Next week we have a return meeting, where I believe we will show a better performance.”
Nina Žabjek, RK Krim Mercator handball player: “Congratulations to the Odense Håndbold team. After a match like this, it’s hard for me to gather my thoughts. The first half was for the textbooks, but in the second a completely different team came to the floor. We lost our rhythm in attack, gave away too many balls to our opponents, which the Danes punished with quick counter-attacks.”
