Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson (VFL Gummersback): I’m very blissful that we managed to attain two factors, although it was very near me ultimately. I did not really feel rather well earlier than as we speak. When I noticed the beginning line-up from Stuttgart with their quick, clever backcourts, I used to be amazed at how effectively we coated. I used to be very pleased with my protection and naturally Tibor did effectively. Initially we felt nervous. We missed alternatives and had a nasty one-on-one. In the second half, the primary three or 4 minutes had been once more uninteresting, however nonetheless we managed to attain ten objectives. Stuttgart then switched to a 5-1 protection and it put strain on us. We did not dare to throw or had been too naive and pat the ball on our toes. We did not do what we had deliberate throughout that part, however on the finish of the day I’m glad each factors stayed at Gummersbach.

Roy Sanchez (TVB Stuttgart): Congratulations to Gummersbach on the win. Of course that is disappointing for us. We made plenty of technical errors and performed unsafe handball, particularly within the first half. Sometimes we weren’t in a position to catch the ball correctly. Things received higher for us within the second half. The group put up an amazing battle all through the sport, however didn’t play freely in its thoughts. It was solely after we misplaced the sport at 23:13 that we had a transparent head and will play our handball. We should hold engaged on ourselves and analyze our errors. The stage we offer doesn’t match the extent of our gamers. Over time and with a transparent head, we will definitely return to regular operations. I want the VFL all one of the best as they’re at the moment among the finest handball taking part in groups within the league.
