Post-match comments after TTCLM Round 3, ROSKILDE BORDTENNIS BTK61
Danish club ROSKILDE BORDTENNIS BTK61 lost its third game in a row, playing TTCLM Round 3 match against top seeded TTC FAKEL GAZPROM ORENBURG. Russian side, three times TTCLM champion, won in straight sets. Roskilde`s player-manager Allan BENTSEN believes that 3:0 defeat in Russia can provide some good things to young trio: Ewardus OOSTWOUDER (23-year-old), ZHAI Yuija (20-year-old) and Claus NIELSEN (20-year-old).
“We had a long trip to top seeded Orenburg and there was no surprises, they did their job and won 3:0. We played against a very professional team, no fun. We try to take some of all these things with us home and use them for our young players”.
Roskilde will host TTF LIEBHERR Ochsenhausen in the Round 4 of Group A, on November 25th. Two more matches will be held on December 2nd (in Angers) and December 16th (against Orebburg at home). In this group Russian side holds the top with 3-0 score, followed by Ochsenhausen (2-1), Angers (1-2) and Roskilde (0-3).
