Noliko to re-play Arkas IZMIR for key match in Pool F
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Men
Maaseik, Belgium, November 18, 2012. After scoring a 3:1 away win this past week in Turkey with a performance that was appreciated also by the local fans of Arkas, Noliko MAASEIK of Belgium prolonged its winning streak in the prelims of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men to three consecutive matches. The Belgian champions will host this Tuesday the side from Izmir for the fourth round of action in Pool F.
“It will be a very difficult match for us especially since the players of Arkas will be very motivated after the defeat they have suffered last week. We will enjoy the home advantage in a hopefully sold out Lotto Dôme. With the support of our fans we shall be able to perform our best” says head coach Brecht Van Kerckhove. “We have to play much better than we did at home. My players have to understand that every single match in this competition is important and we need to be focused 100%” adds Arkas mentor Glenn Hoag. “Noliko is a very solid team and the match will be a real challenge”.
Noliko joins the action after edging another CL competitor, Euphony ASSE-LENNIK, in straight sets in the last round of the national league (25-23, 25-22, and 25-23).
