Krims players satisfied with the start of the European journey

Krim Mercator handball players opened their 28th consecutive season in the most elite handball club competition. The excellent play in the first half of the match against CSM Bucuresti was followed by a slightly worse continuation, which was ultimately not enough for the first two points of the season (28:30). The newcomers in the blue jersey, Jovanka Radičević and Daria Dmitrieva, showed their quality, and together they scored more than half of the Ljubljana team's goals.

Dragan Adžić, coach of RK Krim Mercator: “I am proud of the team. It was our first European game and we expected the level of play to fluctuate. Some female handball players are competing in the EHF Champions League for the first time, for them these are the first challenging matches. I am satisfied that we accomplished what we wanted and I am sure that we will build on this result throughout the season.”

Daria Dmitrieva, RK Krim Mercator handball player: “In the first half, we played excellently both in attack and defense, but in the second half we felt tired. We made some unnecessary mistakes, which we need to fix in the future. It’s definitely a good start to the season. We showed that we can be competitive, and the results will be better in the next matches.”
