Füchse meet Dinamo as group matches reach halfway mark
The EHF European League Men returns from its two-week national team break on Tuesday night as the group matches reach the halfway mark. Round 3 includes some scintillating clashes, most notably the group G game between defending champions Füchse Berlin and Dinamo Bucuresti. Those are two of the nine teams in total who have started with two straight wins.
This game can be decisive. If there is an atmosphere and a crowd at the same level as in the match with Silkeborg, we have a big chance. La Rioja are a great team; they may not have the best start this season in the Spanish league but this is a team that can beat anyone.
The game against Berlin will be very difficult, but it is very important. I know they have had a lot of games in the last few days and they will be tired. If we want to win there, we have to play our best game this season. But I believe in the team, I believe in a good game preparation.
Our opponent travelled to Hungary with a big success behind them, beating Porto in the domestic championship. So they can prepare for Tuesday's game more confidently than we can after our defeat against Komló. We have to improve in all aspects of the game if we want to win. And of course we want to!
We are going to face a team that lost the first match at home, so I am sure they want to show their supporters a different face. We come from a great match against FC Porto, for the Portuguese league, and now we have to focus on the EHF European League. We have to play our game and force their mistakes.
