Vardar handball team will enter the battle with Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals, and this match will decide the second finalist. Vardar has already shown this season that it knows what it takes to get to victory and it is uncertain which team is the favorite.
Kire Lazarov and Borko Ristovski will attempt to stop the Vardar players, so it is clear that this is going to be an interesting match which will add quality and excitement. Nuances will decide on the victory, and the game is expected to bring more adrenalin.
"I have been in the finals four times now but I only have one title. It is not easy to win this tournament, so we have interesting games ahead. It will be difficult but Vardar has what it takes," said Ivan Cupic before the match, who reached triumph last year with the team of Kielce.
The Macedonian national team captain Kire Lazarov will be facing the 'red-and-black' Vardar so this is going to make it even more interesting.
"I am not indifferent. We are all professionals and we have to fight for the team we represent and are paid by. Vardar have shown they are an amazing team this season. They have extra goalkeepers, young team that runs a lot, they are well prepared, and so are we, but we will see what happens on the court. May the best team win," Lazarov said in a statement.
Vardar now needs to show it can play against Barcelona on a neutral court, and this is a sign saying it is an interesting match ahead, which will take at least 2 Macedonian handball players in the final.
