Five teams fight for the last two tickets
14 of the 16 teams which will proceed to the main round of the EHF European League Men have been confirmed after five rounds of the group phase, but match day 6 on Tuesday will not only decide the two last tickets, but in many cases, have serious implications for later in the competition, determining the number of points the qualified teams will carry into the main round.
We are qualified before the last match, which is already a real satisfaction. It's no small thing to have eliminated Benfica who won the EHF European League less than 2 years ago.
It’s important to win this game, to get theses two precious points in the main round.
It's going to be a hard game, the goal is to win, to play in the second round. I think that we are doing well in training, but I also think that Chambery is improving, they have recovered some important players from injuries that didn't play in the first game, and I am sure that this game will not be the same
We really want to finish this group phase with a victory. Maybe it won’t be enough to go to the next round but it will allow us to balance our ratio of victories and defeats in this round of the EHF European League
We have to do better than the match in Romania. We know that they had the supporters behind them, and that was important. Also, we have to be more aggressive against their shooters. We would like to get four points to the next stage, that won't be possible, so we need these two points.
