Statements: 

The Head Coach, Branko Kovacevic stated at olympiacossfp.gr: ‘’For one and half sets, we played better than the previous matches and did the best performance in the season until now. However, this wasn’t enough to get a positive result. We missed lots of opportunities to overturn and win the game. The difference between the two teams isn’t as large as the final score shows. Hope that the rematch at our home will be different. We are expecting the fans support so as to fight for the qualification’’.
