Statements: 

Branko Kovacevic stated at olympiacossfp.gr: ‘’Our current opponent wasn’t so good but this isn’t our problem. I'm glad because the girls took the game seriously and played very well. Playing seriously in every match is the way to achieve the goals we have set for this season’’. 

Laura Emmonts underpinned: "The key was the serve because we created lots of problems and scored easily. We knew it would be an easy game, but we had to face the opponent seriously as we always have to do. We did a good start in the competition and go to Luxembourg to seal the qualification in the next phase.''.
