PPD Zagreb - Metaloplastika 30:25 (19:12)
(Hrstic 4, Mandic 4 / Kljajic 5)

Veselin Vujovic, PPD Zagreb coach: 
First half was better from our side. Second was not bad either but I tried rotating the squad with a few players who are not as active on the defensive side of the court as I'd like them to be finding their place on the court together which resulted in them narrowing the gap but luckily we've managed to bring the match to a close easily. Now it's time to turn towards and start focusing on the match against Elverum. 

Gasper Hrastnik, PPD Zagreb player: 
Good game for us, better first half obviously, a bit slower second but in the end we've managed to bring the match to a close safely and that's what matters the most. 

Veselin Vukovic, Metaloplastika coach: 
We have a very young team which certainly has a good future in case we manage to keep all these guys together for a longer period of time. Zagreb are playing a lot better now than in the beginning of the season, they are much tougher and way more aggressive. Second half was better but a few mistakes in the end from our side decided the encounter in their favor. 

Aleksa Kljajic, Metaloplastika player:
Well-deserved win for Zagreb here today. We started the match off badly and it proved to be costly. Second half was better but not enough for a better result.
