Two days until the European Club Championships. The previous days we got the chance to look at the perspectives of the bigger clubs, where the odds are that one of them will win the title. But what is it like for the clubs who have to play against them? Junior top player Cristian Savin (Moldova) shares the plan of his Czech champion team BK 1973 DELTACAR Benátky nad Jizerou.

- Our goal as a team is to gain as much experience as we can get. .

BK 1973 DELTACAR Benátky nad Jizerou is placed in group 3 with third seeded Calvi Network BC Milano (Italy). Other opponents they will face in this group are ACD Che Lagoense (Portugal) and BAD79 Anderlecht (Belgium).

- our biggest goal is to be 1-2 in the group. It will not be an easy tournament for our club, since we aren’t playing in full team like usually in Czech league..

Gaining experience

The team members from the Czech national league champion that are travelling to Poland, are mostly the more younger players. Also Savin personally wants to use this tournament as an opportunity to get matches at the elite level.

- We have a very young team set-up so we - the youngsters- could get those experiences we need.

- My main goal is to try to win as many matches as I can and get experience against the better players. So next time I can be even better than now!
