After two matches in the VELUX EHF Champions League Preliminary Round, THW Kiel and MKB Veszprem have to decide, who will play at the EHF CL F4 in Cologne at the beginning of June. In German champion know that win over Hungarian champion will be a difficult task:
– We need two very good plays against this awesome team to reach the Final Four in Cologne. We know that we must work hard. We have to play first at home. I think it’s not wrong, it won’t be determinative in this stage of the VELUX EHF Champions League. It will be huge fight, in my opinion the chances are 50-50, but we must qualify – said for the official club’s website, THW’s Alfred Gislason, the world’s best coach for 2012 in Handball-Planet visitors opinion.
“Air France”, Daniel Narcisse isn’t happy because he and his team-mates have to travel to Hungary again:
– That’s a pity to face Veszprém two more times this season. There were two big games in the group phase and the matches in the quarter-final will be much better. If we want to qualify to Cologne, we have to defeat every opposers. There’s no more weak teams in this stage – added Narcisse.
