On the occasion of the 23rd day of Lidl Starligue, HBC Nantes will host Chambéry at the H Arena this Sunday.
After the international break which had affected a large part of the squad, the Nantes team restarted the machine on Tremblay’s floor, delivering a serious copy. A victory that seemed already acquired at half-time, which allowed Alberto Entrerríos and Grégory Cojean to turn their workforce widely.
Because yes, bigger deadlines are coming. And before discussing the double confrontation against Veszprem in the quarterfinals of the EHF Champions League next week, Chambéry will come to the H Arena this Sunday.
And it is against a formation Chambérienne that the Nantes will have to face. Perfectly coming back from the break by winning against Aix on Wednesday, the Savoyards got back into the race for the Top 5. “Chambéry is a very good team which has proven itself capable of achieving very good results. It is up to us to be wary of them and to make sure we counter them, ”analyzes Sebastian Augustinussen. Currently 6th in the championship, Chambéry remains on 4 consecutive victories and will inevitably come to the H Arena with real intentions, led by a very efficient Nikola Portner in his cages for some time.
The “H” also started the home stretch of this 20-21 version. Still in sight, the 2nd place of the Lild Starligue currently occupied by Montpellier. “If Montpellier were to make mistakes, we have to be there, that’s why all points are very important,” said the Danish winger who, like his team-mates, still believes in their chances of getting there. “We have grown as a team for sure. I think the victory in Paris is the result of the confidence we have at the moment. The form is good and the objective is to emerge victorious from each of our meetings “.
