Table tennis. Champions League: a big match to play for Hennebont

Champions League. GV Hennebont TT – Mühlhausen 1951 EV, this Tuesday (7:30 p.m.)

On this occasion, the Hennebontais could count on the presence of the Taiwanese Chuang Chih-Yuan (world No. 16), who was greatly missed in Bavaria.

“We still have our chances”

In order to continue claiming first place in Pool B, which leads to a place in the last four of the competition, Hennebont will have to win with a score of 3-0. Or 3-1, but benefiting from a better set-average. In this second case, the calculators could be out.

“We still have our chances for first place, with the support of the public and our full team. Chuang Chih-Yuan, who took third place at the ITTF Thailand Open last weekend, will be present, as will Kristian Karlsson despite his small thigh problem. Our players 3 and 4 will have to raise their level against this experienced opponent. We will have to play 100%”, support Adrian Crisan, the coach of Hennebont.

The Hennebont will also visit the Austrians of Wels, whom they had largely dominated in the first leg (3-0). The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, December 18 at the Ping-Center.
