So far, the strength of Thursday’s rival could only be seen on video. But as Tel Aviv’s Israeli volleyball players will actually play, they will only see after the first few exchanges. České Budějovice coach Jan Svoboda still knows his team will have a lot of work to do.
Jihostroj is waiting for another international match in the Challenge Cup. From 18:00, an eight-finisher begins in the sports hall. “It’s hard to judge just how real Tel Aviv is in the video. But surely they will be better than the Hungarians we have defeated, “Jihostroj’s coach said.
The Israeli team from the capital in the previous round had a total of 3-2 with Luboteni from Kosovo twice.
“I would not compare Israeli and European volleyball at all.Tel Aviv is an international team, “notes Svoboda, who was preparing his team on an afternoon training course specifically for the Israelis. The coach of Zohar Bar Netzer is a few members of Israel’s wider selection team.
It’s worth mentioning libero Omri Shwartz-Shmoel, recorder Yosef Ben Noun or blocker Yohai Yohan Dadon. In addition to the aforementioned representatives, he has to pay home attention to the Bosnian universe, Andyelko Cuko, who is one of the most punishing players of the Israeli supreme competition, the English scotch Mark Plotyczer or the smart Brazilian.
Jihostroj will have to fight against a strong opponent without his biggest attacking star. Chilean Universe Sebastian Gevert. He pulled his calf muscle.And it will be missing for a few more weeks.
“His injuries are still the same. But Sebastian can walk, he’s working on the top of the gym, and he’s starting to rehabilitate with his leg. If convalescence is going to happen, then it should be fit in six weeks, “says Svoboda coach, who recognizes that the absence of Gevert is a big loss for Budějovice.
” It is a difference player, but Colin Hackworth in his place he jumped without problems and played very well, “he praises the Freedom of the American volleyball player.The 17-year-old universe Marek Šotola and the 22-year-old scrum player Ondřej Lopata were trained before the second round of the Induction Cup with Budějovický. They would be able to complete the home game for today.
The team of Israel will be the biggest favorite in the first round. “But we will of course go home to win,” Freedom says clearly. He will play with Israeli Jihostroj in Tel Aviv on January 31st.
In home extralize, Budweiser volleyball players last lost two games in a row. Jihostroj first defeated Pribram 3: 2 at home and then 3: 1 in the sports hall in České Budějovice and Kladno.It is up to the sixth row in the table, which is not the eighth-time champion of the highest competition.
“So far, we do not even scream for it. Quarter-finals last season are in the middle of the table and it is confirmed that they are long gone when the league dominated two teams. This year’s quarterfinals will therefore be terribly interesting and unpredictable, “says Jan Svoboda.
