Laurent Buffard said after the game: "We lost this game in the first half, making too many mistakes. As our center Sonja Kireta was not here, we had only two players on this position. Chevakata is the best team we played against in this competition. It was a tough European match on a very good level. It was physically hard for us to play. Besides, when we could have reduced the deficit, Mame Sy-Diop committed her fifth foul and Emilija Podrug was managing her ankle. Chevakata was better today."
