“With Hungary, we find a direct competitor,” said The Sart. “We want first place in our group as soon as possible rescue, so we have to win. We believe in our chances. I can already happily look back on my season at Sint-Truiden. My goal was to this year as much as possible races to play and my counter is provisionally on 27 of the thirty. I hope this way in Play-off 2 to continue.”
Also Elias Cobbaut underlined the importance of the match against the Hungarians. “When you win, we do a good thing,” said the defender of KV Mechelen. “That we in our group in the lead, shows that we have a strong core. Our team is ready for the competition. We have confidence and will our game play. For me personally, are the parties to the national team a chance to win the bitter disappointment around the degradation with KV Mechelen to flush it. It is really sad that the season is at Malinwa on which way it ends.”
