Once again we show that we are able to fight with the big guys. Flensburg played a very good game, but I am proud of our boys. If we can get the same match in Germany next week, there are possibilities to get the points back home.

I think the key was in the smart attack. A very important game, in a difficult atmosphere. With this victory, we remain in the race for the next round. I hope that next week we will play even better.

Today was a mental victory for us. We could develop a lot mentally and this made us play like real tigers today. We could stop the fast game of Sporting, this was our key to success.

I am a little bit disappointed because it is the second time in a row we miss five penalties at our home European game. I don't know what the issue is, but we need to fix that. Bjerringbro-Silkeborg have more experience than us in Europe, but missing the seven-metre shots and the fact that we have missed a few open shots, were definitely a key for this game.
