Debutants with four victories in four matches
Coach Uros Zorman can be extremely proud on his side: As debutant in European Cup competitions, Trimo Trebnje kept their clear record. The 28:26 at Tatabanya was the fourth victory in four matches for the Slovenian side. After easily beating Belenenses twice in the second qualification round, a buzzer-beater decided the 23:22 thrilling victory against Balatonfüred in the only match of qualification round 3, which was the ticket to the group stage.
It was the hardest game of the season as some main players were missing today. We played with full heart, that made us two points richer today.
