Meshkov Brest - Barca: press conference

MESHKOV BREST

XAVIER PASCUAL FUERTES, Barca Head Coach

I congratulate Brest with a good game. But first of all I want to dedicate this victory to my friend Yuri Gavrilov, who passed away a few days ago. About the game, we started very well, controlled the rhythm. After 20 minutes Brest had improved their defence and we made some mistakes and the game was equal. In the second half we controlled the game because we wanted to win and didn´t think about the difference. It’s very difficult to win in Brest this season.

MEM DIKA, Barca Right Back

I think we played a great match today. We are happy to go home with victory. A long time we didn’t play in an arena with a full crowd. It was a great feeling.

RAUL ALONSO, HC Meshkov Brest Coach

For us it was a very special situation. It was like climbing Everest with flip-flops. The only solution was to put some spikes on it. Congratulations to Barca with a well-deserved victory. First ten minutes they were playing emotional and superior. And after that our players proved that they are a very special team. Every club can have such problems, but in these circumstances to play Barca like this is a fantastic effort. We’ll try one more time in Barcelona. And thank you very much to our fans, they were amazing as always.

STAS SKUBE, HC Meshkov Brest Centre Back

We have to be really proud that we came to this quarter final and play against Barca, probably the best team in the world. We showed a really good performance. Our opponents were honestly better, they had more rotation, more players, more quality, but with 7-9 players we fought a lot and we did everything that we could. Now we can go to Barcelona without pressure and try to fight and show another good performance.
