Guest team coach Dejan Jakara: The first European game for our boys. We did not have much time to prepare for tonight’s game. I think we played a solid match. I was expecting my young guys to fall with a rhythm in the second half, but they endured to the end. Congratulations to Osijek on winning.
Guest team player Mladen Primorac: Good match for viewers. He played well in offense without the right defense. We have a young team and this game was used as a preparation for the season.
