MADRID, Jan. 17 (SportsFinding) –

The Spanish handball coach, Jordi Ribera, highlighted the “very high pace” of Austria and the difficulty of measuring a host this Saturday in the European 2020, with important points for both in search of the semifinals, while being calm for the defeat a few months ago against the Austrians.

“It is a team that has an important performing facet, with a lot of ease of throwing. The two sides are two players who are easily finished, very well directed. They have one of the top scorers of the tournament, they play with a high pace. They don't do relays, but the pace is always very high and they play at home, that the atmosphere always gives one more point, “he said.

The coach of the 'Hispanics' attended the media in the pre-match to the second round of the Main Round, where Spain began with a victory against the Czech Republic and Austria, with a defeat against Croatia. “The fact of having two sides with the ease they have cannot be aware of one. You have to avoid losing balls, have a little more continuity in the game,” he said.

“Croatia makes a 5: 1 that for them is difficult to defend, we have been better attacked by our 5: 1. It is a matter of styles, but we must see how it starts, how the game is developing, the proposals that each one has, “he added.

Ribera explained the matches against Austria in the recent EHF EURO Cup. “We must think that we were in a test period. It is true that it was the only game we lost, they attacked us running well. In Melilla we won with difficulty, the matches are all different and let's see what happens. For everyone it is a very important game, we are both there, “he concluded.
