Nataša Derepasko, coach of RK Krim Mercator: “I am very pleased with the result of the match. The first half was nervous both in defense and attack. We didn’t have a solution for their shooters, especially Emily Bölk. We had some luck in the second half. Bölkova got a red card so we had a little less worry. We will do our best on the return match. We have a few more trainings ahead of us to correct the mistakes we made this time, and we are leaving for the tour with a positive outcome in mind. “

Ana Gros, handball player of RK Krim Mercator: “I am very proud of the team. We played a great match, but we still have a few things to fix. The return match in Budapest will be more demanding because of the fans themselves. We have to prepare as much as possible and go to the match focused on winning. There is no time to calculate the result. “
