“We wanted to meet with Larvik because it would be a spicy game for us,” said Miklos Bitter from Siófok, referring to the Hungarian team’s Norwegian coach, Tor Odvar Moen, who moved from Larvik to Siófok last summer.
“Working with Tor Odvar is a great pleasure for us, he is like a grandfather for the team,” Bitter said. “It’s a very interesting group, so I think it will be really great matches for us.”
In Group C, Larvik HK, the fourth team in the competition that came down from the EHF Champions League, can prepare for matches against E.S. Besancon Feminin, Viborg HK and Kuban.
“It’s a pretty strong group. We will do our best,” Viborg’s Henrik Dahl said. “We had a difficult start of the season but it looks quite well right now.”
