Aurubis re-start their European adventure by hosting Slovak opponent
2013 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Women
Hamburg, Germany, November 18, 2013. After last season they reached the semis, Germany’s Aurubis HAMBURG will be trying to continue their success story as on Wednesday they play Slovakia’s Doprastav BRATISLAVA to start their second adventure in the CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup – Women. The players around head coach Helmut von Soosten would like to build on last year’s solid performance to add another honour to their resume.
The first step will be the home match with Doprastav coming up on Wednesday at the CU Arena. Aurubis and Doprastav somehow crossed their ways in a pre-season tournament held last September in Potsdam though they did not play each other there. Doprastav was eventually able to place higher in the final standing of the tournament than their upcoming German opponents. Aurubis wants to win the home match to get the right edge for the return scheduled for November 26 in Slovakia’s capital city. They also want to forget the very bad start of their campaign in the Bundesliga and get back the necessary self-confidence so as to start performing better also in their domestic championship.
