Josef Jandač (Sparta): I think in the first period we were nervous. It showed out there that we were playing at home with a lot of new guys, so that kind of nervousness is to be expected. Once we popped two goals we settled down, we played just fine without any problems and we match dragged to a victorious end.
Peter Draisaitl (Hradec Králové): We were more or less even the first period. I think the key moment was the 3-1 goal, which we shouldn´t have given up. After that, we weren´t able to get any quality chances and Sparta somehow were able to do whatever they wanted. It was evident that the quality of players Sparta has is a bit different than us.
