“We have been dreaming of reaching the final"
Hugo Canela warns of the difficulties in facing a wounded JMS Hurry-Up side
Sporting CP might hold a five-goal advantage (32-27) from the first-leg of the Challenge Cup played in the Netherlands last week, nonetheless coach Hugo Canela has warned his players to be cautious for this Saturday's reverse fixture.
“We are expecting a difficult game. Hurry-Up have come back from 10 goals down before, after winning the second-leg away by 12 goals. They threw everything forward and I am expecting them to do exactly the same thing tomorrow, so we have been working on that in training this week. They have nothing to lose, so it will be a hard game", said Canela, adding: "We have been dreaming of reaching the final since the start of the competition, but we still have a lot of work to do. We know that five goals is nothing in handball and we want to get through unbeaten."
