European cup is always a different atmosphere, a different excitement, too. There is always a big motivation for the players and spectators to face foreign teams. I think we are in the biggest group. We know that all the matches will be very competitive and that qualification will really not be easy.

They are a good team, they are very strong at home and it will be a great challenge for us. We want to compete with the big teams, and they are one of those big teams right now. We are growing as a team and it is important to play against great opponents, let’s see how we can respond in this first round of the EHF European League

We have a match against Skjern, one of the favourites of our group, a team that we know well and respect very much. It is a classic Scandinavian team that plays very fast, collective handball. They have an extremely fast transition, counter, half-counter and fast centre. So, for this match we will have to raise ourselves in all phases of the game to an even higher level throughout the entire 60 minutes.
