The Budućnost female handball players' placement in the quarter-finals of the Champions League would achieve great success, the coach of the Podgorica club said.
Budućnost is playing on Sunday as guests against the German team Tiringer in the fifth round of the Champions League.
Adžić said that Tiringer plays significantly different in front of his fans, compared to away matches, saying that this is best confirmed by the duel with the French team Metz.
"Placement in the quarterfinals would be a great success for Budućnost, bearing in mind the youth of the team and all the problems that have followed us since the beginning of the season. For this season we also counted on Suzana Lazović, Ema Ramusović, and now we do not even have Marta Batinović. That game against Metz and 29 given goals tell us what awaits us in Nordhausen, "Adžić said at a briefing with the press.
He emphasized that the season was designed so that as many players as possible get the chance to play and take more responsibility while playing.
The trophy expert did not want to comment on the fact that for the Podgorica team to reach the quarterfinals, it could be enough even to lose the match with less than eight goals, stating that it would be a success, in any way, to reach the quarterfinals.
"We will not deal with calculations, but we will try to grow and be better than before. We are happy with how we played defense against Ferencvaros. I believe that we will have this level of defense in Nordhausen as well and that we can defend and counteract the energy of the opponent in such a significant match, "Adžić concluded.
The team from Podgorica won the first duel 29:21.
A single point from Sunday's match is sufficient to secure the fourth place and quarter-finals in the group before the end of the group competition.
Budućnost, the former champions of Europe, had their only triumph in the group round against Tiringer. They also had three defeats - away from Vardar 31:24 and Ferencvaros 34:26, who also won the match in Podgorica 24:23.
Tiringer achieved both triumphs against Bitingheim, and besides Budućnost, he was also defeated by Metz.
Budućnost and Tiringer will play the tenth mutual duel in official international competitions.
Budućnost has won eight duels, while the German team won only once.
Last season, Budućnost won both matches - 28:19 in Podgorica and 32:26 away.
The duel in Nordhausen will start at 2 pm.
