GIORGOS BARTZOKAS: “Reaching the end of the season, we only have critical games to play. Even tonight’s one was important to us, not ranking wise, but in view of our preparing. Elefsina played good defense in the first half and made it more difficult for us presenting situations that we had wanted to face. The score opened up in the second half, we passed 21 assists, showed will to play as a team and I think that we succeeded in playing a solid and spectacular game”.

ROKAS OUZAS: “It was a good game, we played well especially in the first half, but we made some stupid mistakes in the second half, defensive mistakes that Olympiacos took advantage of and got the victory”.
