This season in September in Duesseldorf the hosts gave Bogoria severe lesson, winning 3:0.
“We have to play at our highest level to win against Borussia. My players already have victories against their opponents, but the important thing is to play their best on right time on Friday. Big question is how to beat Timo BOLL, but also GIONIS and ACHANTA play really well. All my players will be fully motivated, concentrated and ready to fight until the end of the match”, explained Tomasz REDZIMSKI.
Both teams will start the game with calm situation in national leagues. Dartom Bogoria in Polish Superleague is first after nine matches (22 points).

In German Bundesleaugue Danny HEISTER’s team is also first with seven victories in a row (14 points).
“We want to win to improve our situation in the group. It will help us to cut down the pressure for matches against Wels and Hennebont. We have to play braver and use their weak sides. Match against German team is something exceptional” – admitted Daniel GORAK, who narrowly lost to WANG Hao 3:4 in recently ended Swedish Open.
