We played to bad matches against Győr earlier this season, but now we are well equipped to meet them. Győr has already lost two CL-finals, and I think we have a little bit of advantage here, since many of our players had been part of the team which took the trophy two years ago.
We have a good plan how to defeat Győr, I feel that we enter this duel from the position of challenger team and we can use this to be an advantage.
