Players to watch 1st semi-final match: Arpad Sterbik - Alexander Shkurinskiy


Tough defenses are the main characteristics of both teams. It is hard to score easy goals when these two defenses are performing at their best level. That is why many things will depend on how easy Meshkov Brest's back shooters will be able to score against Arpad Sterbik. He will surely be additionally motivated to deliver a strong performance in front of Vardar’s fans prior to leaving the club for Veszprem this summer.

Meshkov will definitely highly depend on the ability to open up Vardar’s defense from distance and their main weapon for that will surely be the Russian player Alexander Shkurinskiy. Since Petar Djordjic went down with an injury, he will need to make a great proof of his capabilities. His talent was on display this season, being the second best scorer for the team from Brest with 49 goals this season. However, the question remains whether he will be able to find a way to get past ‘El Muro de Senta’ – Arpad Sterbik.
