Manolo Cadenas praised his opponents' form across all competitions, “Congratulations to Barça Lassa, because they played very well during all the Champions League, even the Asobal League”.

“They started in a level that was impossible to follow for us. After that, we tried came back to the match, but it was impossible. Barça have power, they had a lot of players in all the positions, and they deserved the victory”.

“I’m very proud of my team." Xavi Pascual exclaimed. "It’s not easy to play against Meshkov Brest, because they always play with a lot of rhythm.

“We are playing during all the season in a good level, our defense is okay, we can run a lot, and in addition, in attack, we find a lot of solutions. To think that we have five points of advantage to Vardar is amazing."

Petar Djordic of Meshkov was proud of his side's efforts, “Barça played a very good match, with an excellent start. After the first half it was very difficult to come back to the game. We tried to show character and we played some good minutes. We have potential and we have to show that in the next games."
