Just two days left to the first final match of Men`s European Champions League in Dusseldorf and both finalists, Borussia and Orenburg, are preparing separately in this German city. Russian champion used to hold their training camps in Borussia`s hall when they come in this part of Europe, so this time two times MECL champion arrived five days before the game which will be held on May 10th (13h00 CET).

Orenburg`s vice-president Viktor ANDREEV, speaking for his club`s website before his the trip to Germany, emphasized: “We are intensively preparing for the forthcoming match. World Cup was a good preparation for Vladimir SAMSONOV, Dimitrij OVTCHAROV and Fedor KUZMIN, while Alexey SMIRNOV trained individually. They are focused on victory”.

ANDREEV is positive that players from both sides will adapt well after tremendous efforts at QOROS 2015 World Championships in Suzhou, China. “Our players are professionals enough to deal with this particularly difficult situation”, he stressed for Borussia`s website.

These opponents met just once in the final, four years ago, when Borussia triumphed. After that Orenburg took two titles in a row, beating Germans in 2013/14 quarter-finals.
