PPD Zagreb welcome Tatran Presov

PPD - Tatran

PPD Zagreb and Tatran Presov will on Wednesday (20.00 CET) in Dom sportova sports hall meet in what will be the second leg of their SEHA – Gazprom League Quarter final matchup. PPD Zagreb have a week ago in Slovakia managed to make a big step towards Zadar, which will host SEHA – Gazprom League Final 4 tournament this season, defeating coach Goluza and his guys 21:25. However, both sides are aware the deal hasn’t really been sealed yet and that 60 minutes in Zagreb will decide everything.

Make sure to tune in on Arena Sport channels and find out who will become our first SEHA – Gazprom League 2020 Final 4 participant.

Veselin Vujovic, PPD Zagreb coach:
It won’t be easy to fight for the semi-final ticket without our fans supporting us. We are fully focused and careful despite of the fact we’ve managed to reach a victory in our premier encounter against Tatran in Presov. We’ll do our best to deliver another strong outing to prove that the game in Slovakia wasn’t just luck. Players are healthy and I can say I expect this to be a good game.

Matej Hrstic, PPD Zagreb player:
First half of this semi-final matchup is behind us and this time we can’t afford ourselves to enter the match the way we did last time. We’ve been training and preparing for this one quite well and our goal will be to showcase everything we’ve been working on. Main thing will be to enter the match in the best possible way and hopefully seal the deal as early as possible.

Slavko Goluza, Tatran Presov coach:
First of all, Zagreb have in the first leg proved they are a top team with experience from elite Champions League group. In the first match we wanted to deliver the best possible performance and now we will look to do the same. Regardless of the first result, we want to play a good match and if we do, I believe we can hope for a positive outcome.

Josef Hozman, Tatran Presov player:
Despite the four-goal loss, we have to go to Zagreb with an ambition to achieve a good result and try to make up for the loss in Presov. We have to prepare even better taking into account what we’ve seen in the first match as well. One of the key things will be to limit their power-play actions which they were using quite often in the first match.
