Telde.- Rocasa Gran Canaria will play the pass to the semifinals of the EHF Eurocup with a single match in Turkey on February 21 against Yalikavaksports, as reported this Monday by the Telde club.
The Rocasa Gran Canaria coach, Carlos Herrera, announced this Friday that his team will make it “very difficult” this Sunday against the Turkish team Yalikavaksports Club in the quarter-final tie of the EHF European Cup.
After two weeks in quarantine due to an outbreak of covid-19, the Teldense team traveled to Turkey this Thursday to play the European qualifying round for a single game, after the virus forced to suspend the first leg scheduled for last Sunday in Gran Canaria, as reported by Rocasa in a statement.
Herrera has considered that “the tie is at 50%” but anticipates that his players “are going to fight” for their place in the semifinals of the competition and that “to beat them they will have to do much better than them.”
The team has only enjoyed two training sessions since the quarantine ended this Tuesday and has also had a long trip to Turkey. However, the Teldenses will have two training sessions before the game that they hope will be worth them to face the appointment “with guarantees”, said the Gran Canaria coach.
“Yalikavaksports is a strong team, very complete, with a very good front row and that knows how to move the ball very well”, in addition to having the advantage of playing at home and a single match, the goalkeeper of the Teldenses warriors Silvia Navarro.
In his opinion, the team must face the “complicated” tie against the leader of the Superlig Women of Turkey “with the five senses” and, therefore, anticipates that he travels there “with all the desire and strength in the world to make a good role ”.
The EHF European Cup quarter-final tie between Rocasa Gran Canaria and Yalikavaksports Club will take place this Sunday, February 21 at 1:00 p.m. Canary Islands time at the Binnaz Karakaya Sports Hall in Bodrum, Turkey.
