Djordje Simeunović points out that team can not be relaxed in front of this match:
“We are expecting a busy schedule in the Super League where we play on an average every 2,3 days. The first opponent is Konstantin and we are seriously preparing for that match. We played against them in the cup, where they showed that they are a good team. We resolved match then in the fourth quarter. We need to impose our distinctive aggressive defensive play from the start of the match and with the full dose concentrations, to get the win. There is only 6 rounds in the league part and it is an additional reason not to come to relaxation in any match”,

“We are expecting the beginning of Super League. Konstantin is a team that possesses the quality and deserved to be placed in the Super League. We played with them in the Cup when we near the end managed to break the match in our favor. That match is a reminder that we need to very seriously approach the match in order to reach the victory at the start of the competition”,
