NEXE and Borac m:tel will on Saturday (19.00 CET) play in King Tomislav' sports hall as a part of SEHA Gazprom League. Both teams will enter the match with similar expectations. Team from Banja Luka has so far played only two matches losing against Spartak Vojput and reaching a draw against Maks Strumica. NEXE have on the other side just got back from 'Serbian tour' in which they were in Novi Sad better than Vojvodina and in Subotica they have outplayed Spartak. That makes Borac a great chance for them to reach the first win of the season in front of their fans in Našice.
Borac have recently went through coach changing process with Boris Dvoršek replacing Igor Rađenović. Dvoršek will however not lead the team in Slavonia as he is taking over the coaching duty from the beginning of October but NEXE will still have a chance for a slight revenge as they have never managed to beat PPD Zagreb while Boris Dvoršek was their coach.
Zdenko Kordi, NEXE's coach:
We respect Borac, team with excellent mix of experience and talent. My wish is to become at least one step better than in our last match, I'd like to see progress in each clash. Match against our guests from Banja Luka is the one in which we will certainly not calculate at all.
Mirko Herceg, NEXE's left back:
We have great atmosphere in the our locker which is extremely important. We're however aware Borac are not as bad as league's table would at the moment suggest and it will not be easy. I believe we will celebrate in front of our fans.
Tibor Ivanišević, Borac's player:
I believe that we will show a good game. We must be focused through out the whole match and reduce technical mistakes as much as possible. If we manage to do it I believe we might reach a good result.
Stefan Janković, Borac's player:
We expect a very hard match. We know all about NEXE's team which is excellent so I think it will be an unpredictable match until the last minute.
