Alicia Stolle: “Group phase is very important for whole club”
For German international Alicia Stolle, there have only been five months between the EHF Champions League final with FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria and the EHF European League qualification with her new club, BV Borussia 09 Dortmund. On Sunday (19 November), Stolle and Dortmund try to secure their place in the group phase as they need to overcome a one-goal deficit against H.C. Dunarea Braila in Romania after losing the first leg at home last week.
We know that it is really hard to play in Romania, against a strong team with frenetic fans. But it is only -1 at the moment, nothing is decided. Braila maybe are the strongest of all teams we could have faced in this round. Before the draw, I said: ‘I want anything but Braila.’
