Galatasaray was a tough opponent for us but after defeating Dinamo KRASNODAR twice, we wanted to go for more” says home coach Darko Zakoc. “They are a strong team but tonight we did take profit of their weaknesses. If we play with the same attitude and quality also on Sunday, I think we have good chances to make it to the final” he adds.

“They have two outstanding players, Lo Bianco and Calderon, but I also believe we have good chances to advance to the final” says Tomis setter Diana Neaga. “The matches in the European Cups are always very special and I hope we can cause another sensation by beating Galatasaray also on Sunday”.  

“Galatasaray has got a roster that includes many experienced players who are playing also for their respective national teams. I think they are stronger than Dinamo because they have a great setter, Lo Bianco, but we will give our best also in the return match and we’ll see what comes there in Istanbul” concludes Bulgarian middle blocker Tsvetelina Zarkova.
