Tatran Presov is currently positioned second with a match and only point less than Zagreb. In this sitauation, they are currently first candidates for the first position in the end. But, to reach it they will might have to win each match until the end of the regular season and the first step will be Borac today, in Banja Luka. Borac has , on the other side, no chance to be in Novi Sad in April, but the club from Banja Luka wishes to save the image of a great club and beat favorized Tatran. Dva different motives, two great challenges, big clash.
Peter Hatalcik, Tatran's coach:
- After the win against CO Zagreb we've secured the place on Final Four and got rid of that pressure. We're in a great form and wish to show what we can a reach regular season's number 1. Borac is a great opponent especially at home which is visible on their home-match results. But we're coming to win.
Andrej Petro, Tatran's player:
- I'm looking forward to coming back to the team after recovering from a shoulder injury. After the win against Zagreb we wish to fight for the No. 1 and that is the main goal. We expect motivated Borac and great crowd today.
Jani Cop, Borac's coach:
- Tatran has a team which has been together for many years and is slowly advancing. Their fast tempo is not good for us due to our injuries and lack of trainings. I think that we've lost the last match, against Meshkov, because we were too tired and we've missed Ratko Nikolic. He will be back in roster for this match and it means much for us.
Goran Trkulja, Borac's player:
- Tatran Presov is a favorite today, without doubts. Atmosphere in our team is great and we'll do our best to surprise them in front of our great home crowd which will , I hope, be our additional strenght today. We really need them in situations like this ...
