From today until November 28th French club Vaillante Angers will play against four Men`s European Champions League participants. Two games will be held in national Pro A league, against Chartres (today) and Pontoise (next Tuesday) and two in MECL: UMMC (this Friday) and Sten Marketing (November 28th).

Announcing the game against 2013 Russian champion UMMC, Angers` president Gerard SARAZIN stressed that he expects a good match between last season`s MECL semi-finalists. “We will have 3 big events in 10 days because we will play in Pro A against Chartres the Tuesday (we are both leaders for the moment) and the next Tuesday in Pontoise (3rd rank for the moment) so 3 big matches in 10 days and the next Friday we will receive Sten…”

French side has 1-2 score after three rounds. They lost 3:1 in opening round at Verkhnaya Pyshma, thus SARAZIN is aware how hard will be to progress in the next stage:

Against Ekaterinburg we will have not any choice than win if we want to continue in Champion’s League this season: we need to win all the 3 matches and of course it will be so, so difficult…But first we are very happy to receive Ekaterinburg and especially MIZUTANI (we never see him in real!) the fantastic lefthander. In Ekaterinburg we lost 3:1 and made a good game so there is a little possibility to dream”

Six out of eight MECL Round 4 matches are scheduled for this Friday. Also two WECL games will be held on that day.
