The girls from Slovenia are the clear favourites in this encounter also according to Linz Steg manager Walter Hartl: “It would be presumptuous to expect a victory. However, we hope that the slightly upward trend that we noticed recently will continue – we want to make it as hard for our opponents as possible.

While the team of Maribor was able to win eight out of ten encounters, the girls of Linz-Steg only have one success on their record: two weeks ago they were able to defeat Vasas Budapest and also cut a good figure in the following encounter in their away match vs. Doprastav Bratilsava which they lost in four sets.

Hartl: “Both our head coach and our assistant coach attest that the performance of our team is continuously getting better. I hope very much that this will be obvious also on Saturday.

Most likely Linz-Steg will have to play without captain Elisabeth Klopf who is suffering from an injury of her right middle foot.

What will be particularly interesting in the encounter is the duel of the competition’s best scorers since Heather Leigh Meyers of Linz-Steg is currently ranked first followed by Maribor’s Sarah Julie Ammermann.
