“You cannot expect an easy victory from this kind of matches. Our opponent Galatasaray is a very strong team. We should have won 3-0 and I am a little bit upset because of the third set. We gave away as many as 15 points to Galatasaray. In the final set, on the other hand, we fought for every point. We won this game because we deserved it. Details are always important to me.” said Giovanni Guidetti, head coach of VakifBank.

I think we played very well today. We tried to make up for our deficit every time, even when we were trailing by seven or eight points, but sometimes it was difficult to catch up with the opponent. We played at the same level as VakifBank in the third and fourth sets. I am happy with the performance that we delivered tonight. We were waiting for today since the start of the season and our players showed this with their approach. There was a good atmosphere here and I am happy that we delivered such a great Volleyball show to so many children and to all the fans who came to see the match.” said Ataman Guneyligil, head coach of Galatasaray.
