EHF / Danijela Vekić, Ida Hummeluhr

After a one-week break, the EHF European League Women group phase returns with round 4, which consists of the reverse fixtures from the previous round. Thüringer HC, Sola HK and Ikast Håndbold, the three unbeaten teams so far, have a chance to book an early quarter-final ticket if they win their respective clashes. While other spots are still open, HC Podravka Vegeta and Fana will try to claim their first win of the season to stay in the race for the knock-out phase.

Last match we got our first win in the EHF Europa League. It has given us the taste for more. Now we`re up against Nantes again. We`re not going there to defend anything, but chasing new points.

Our team has to focus on our own gameplay and we have to manage our defence on the level of the international elite teams, thus we can’t afford technical faults and we have to make good decisions, even at high-paced gameplay. It is not an easy task to do, but we can’t improve ourselves to a next level until we are able to master that.

There are 3 rounds left from the group phase and we know that every match is very important. At home, we have no other goal, but victory!

I think it will be an even game where the team with best focus and ready from start, takes the win. We've got to focus on our defence and get to play fast handball, but make the right assessments along the way. It's a good team we will face at their home arena and it's important that we have quality in what we are going to do in the game.

We are focused and have a consistently good atmosphere. We are all focused on these training sessions that we have left and preparing for Sunday and the goal is of course to fix the mistakes we made there. I believe that we are all ready to reach our first victory in Europe.

Two weeks ago, it was a big surprise that we could win against Paris 92. It's sure that they will prepare with double power to take revenge on us for that result, but I hope that we can play against them a very good game in Paris as well, and we can continue our way of what we started in the last two weeks.
