SF SKK EL Niňo Praha won another thriller
SF SKK EL Niňo Praha advanced to the fourth round of the Europe Cup Men with two victories over Roskilde Bordtennis BTK61.
In both legs, the Czech team needed the full five matches to overcome the club from Denmark. This time, Jiri VRABLIK was the backbone of the team's success as he defeated Jens LUNDQVIST and Dominykas SAMUOLIS, who also suffered at the hands of Tomas KONECNY.
"It was a very close match. We had the chance to win 3:0, but then everything came again same close like in the first match in Prague," said El Niño Praha Sport Director Matthias Landfried.
