SUMMARY: Barça concede to Veszprém as round 6 concludes
It's round 6 of the Machineseeker EHF Champions League, headlined by the Match of the Week between Aalborg and Kolstad on Wednesday and continuing with five games on Thursday evening.
It’s been a long time since our last win here. I think no players from the team were there at this moment. We fought a lot tonight and in the end our little mistakes didn’t make the difference to put us in a difficult situation.
I can safely say that our defence in the first 20 minutes allowed us to build up a lead, which we carried to the end. We are very satisfied that we beat a young but very talented team like Celje.
We believed in the possibility of a comeback even when we were four goals down, otherwise we couldn't have won. We fought, we won, and it's a significant result that we need to build upon.
We've experienced certain problems in the last couple of matches trying to find the right formula, the right tempo. Today, I feel like we've here, in front of our fans, managed to make yet another statement about how much this team is capable of, and how much everyone can expect from this team. We fought hard, even struggled for 60 minutes, but in the end reached an important win, and I have to stress how proud I am of my guys.
Of course I'm happy, it was an incredibly important game for us. A lot of pace, two great goalkeepers on display, but in the end I feel like we were able to stay focused and calm, and take the win.
