Coach’s voice:

Gudjon Valur Sigurdsson (VfL Gummersbach): In the top I’m very completely satisfied that we managed to get two factors, despite the fact that it was too shut for me. I did not have a great feeling in the present day. When I noticed Stuttgart’s beginning line-up with their fast, clever assault, I used to be amazed at how properly we did. I used to be very happy with our protection and naturally Tibor did properly. At first, it was noticeable that we have been nervous. We missed alternatives and failed to fulfill in individual. In the second half, the primary three or 4 minutes have been calm once more, however after that we got here again with a ten aim distinction. Stuttgart then switched to a 5-1 protection and that put stress on us. We did not dare to throw or have been too naive and hit the ball with our toes. We did not do what we deliberate on this stage, however on the finish of the day I’m glad that each factors went to Gummersbach.

Roy Sanchez (TVB Stuttgart): Congratulations to Gummersbach on a well-deserved win. Of course, it is disappointing for us. We made plenty of technical errors and performed harmful handball, particularly within the first half. Sometimes we couldn’t maintain the ball correctly. Things went properly for us within the second half. The workforce fought brilliantly all through the sport however couldn’t play freely of their sport. Only after we misplaced the sport at 23:13, we have been capable of clear our heads and play our handball. We need to work on ourselves and analyze our errors. The degree we ship doesn’t match the extent of our gamers. In time, we are going to return to our regular actions. Good luck to VfL as they’re among the best handball groups within the league in the mean time.
