(Rosu 5 / Jelinic 6; Moreno 12 saves)
Ovidiu Mihaila, Steaua Bucuresti coach:
I’d like to congratulate Croatian team on this win here today. In the first we were able to stay close but then started missing out on too many clear scoring chances which proved to be costly in the end.
Mohsen Babasafari, Steaua Bucuresti player:
NEXE have a good team and they deserved this win. I hope for them to go all the way this season in SEHA League. Our main priorities are now our national league and Romanian Cup.
Hrvoje Horvat, NEXE coach:
Very important match for us and our intentions of qualifying for the final tournament. Defense was on a high level today and that was in my opinion the key for our victory in the end.
Halil Jaganjac, NEXE player:
We were able to stay focused throughout the full course of the encounter. We know Steaua are capable of delivering solid performances but we didn’t allow them to surprise us tonight.
