Munich’s Andi Obst, successful with 15 points, summed up: “It was an intense match. It was important for the head to make another statement here. In the end, we lost, but we wanted to be stronger. We know what the match is about. The focus is now on Friday.”

Fruit on defeat in light of the start of the playoffs: “It’s not nice to lose like that. But we’ve taken a lot of good things from the last couple of games.”

The opponent will only be known after today’s Ludwigsburg-Heidelberg match – if Ludwigsburg wins, Bayern Munich will beat Chemnitz in the quarterfinals: “We certainly still have a score to make up with Chemnitz,” Obst said after 3 defeats to the scare of the favorites.

Munich’s Nick Weiler-Babb: “It was a good test to get in shape for the playoffs. A really nice, intense and tough match for every ball. “

Whether the defeat will negatively affect the start of the playoffs: “No. It’s 0-0 for everyone. We start over.”

“Ohh – that’s good of course” – ALBA inspires and wants to “become a champion”

Berlin’s Louis Olinde on the season’s first win against FC Bayern: “Ohhh, of course it’s good. With a victory and so here in Munich – it’s good of course. We are inspired and want to be German champions.” ALBA will play against Bamberg, Olinde’s former club, in the quarter-finals: “I’m really looking forward to it. It will be something special.”

Berlin CEO Marco Baldi: “You could see in the end how both clubs would like to win. You do not have to rate the game very highly with certainty. It is good that everything is healthy – on both sides. And now it’s starting in earnest.”

Baldi’s goals: “Now it’s about trying to refine what’s been built up through the season. It sounds so simple and so logical, but it’s hard because the pressure is completely different.”
