Sävehof’s playmaker hopes they can secure their first away victory and qualify for the Last 16.
A place in the Last 16 of the VELUX EHF Champions League beckons for IK Sävehof. Next Saturday the Swedish champions play at Bosna Sarajevo and a victory would give them a ticket for the knockout stage after their sensational win over Zagreb last weekend.
One of the keys to success at Sävehof is Fredrik Larsson. The back court player returned to his home country before this season after a spell playing in Spain. By scoring 13 goals he paved the way to victory over Zagreb – and he is hoping to help his side secure their first away points of the season, as Larsson tells us in this interview with ehfCL.com.
