Neven Stjepanovic: "We were able to rotate more which eventually helped us seal the deal"


Eurofarm Pelister - Metaloplastika 30:26 (12:14)

(Peric 8, Mandalinic 6 / Babic 7)

Zeljko Babic, Eurofarm Pelister coach:

Metaloplastika have delivered a really good performance, they’ve played a dynamic match running the court really well. I feel like we have more individual quality at the moment, more experience on the bench in players like Stjepanovic who was able to jump in and deliver when we needed him.

Neven Stjepanovic, Eurofarm Pelister player:

Metaloplastika have a young, quick team which you simply can’t beat in opening ten minutes of the game. We were able to rotate more which eventually helped us seal the deal in my opinion.

Veselin Vukovic, Metaloplastika coach:

We’ve played against a team which is competing in European competition and investing a lot of money which is why I believe they will only get stronger. We’ve delivered a solid performance but I hope we’ll deliver an even better one at home, in Sabac.

Dejan Babic, Metaloplastika player:

I’m satisfied with the way we’ve finished this year delivering a solid performance here in Bitola. It’s a pity we didn’t get to experience atmosphere this city regularly delivers. I feel like Eurofarm have a bigger roster at the moment. We fought well until the end and I also believe we’ll deliver an even better performance in the second match in Sabac.
