Ambros Martín: We knew, that this victory will be very important for us in order to save our position on the top of the group. We made a good job in the first half but we had to focus later too. We are satisfied with the 2 points, because the opponent team never gave up, they were fighting until the last moments.
Anne Mette Hansen: It was a tough game, we had to concentrate until the last minutes.
Jacob Larsen: We did not give up even though we knew that there will be a big fight against the group-leader. It is very hard to play and have a good defence against them, but I think there were some situations, when we could solve it.
Sarah Iversen: We played against a really good team today – of course we wanted to win, but today they were better.
