Roland Mikler said that whoever knocks this Veszprém out of the Champions League deserves to win the whole thing. I agree. We had a lot of technical mistakes, with this you cannot win a match.

Grebille Quote
The goal was to be qualified and it’s done. Before the game, we knew Plock was a tough team and they showed it again tonight. We missed some actions but we fought until the end. It’s crucial for the dynamic, we have several games coming, the play-off step is done and now we have to stay focused.
