The OSC will meet with the French Pays D’Aix team in the eighth final of the water polo Euro Cup. Dani Varga expects a strong opponent, a good match, but he expects the OSC to advance.

“Bonjour,” Dani Varga picked up his phone cheerfully when the MOL Team caught up with the OSC head coach on the French border. The players from Újbuda will meet the French team of the Pays D’Aix on Saturday in the eighth final of the Euro Cup, and although the OSC is a chance for a duel, Dani warned against caution.

“Of course, progress is expected, not because the French team would be weak, but because we have to set big goals for ourselves. French water polo has been on an upward curve, their league is getting stronger because of the Paris Olympics, I recently heard sixty-seven foreign legions (including some big-name world stars) playing in the French league. ”

“And if we talk specifically about the Pays d’Aix, it says a lot about their strength that elite teams have already been thoroughly squeezed in European cup matches. Szolnok, for example, were only scored by two goals, and Vouliagmeni could only beat them with a last-minute goal. He’s a strong team, I’m looking forward to a tough match, ”Dani said.

As for the duel itself, the OSC coach said that fortunately the Euro Cup is already taking place in a round-trip system, so even a weaker performance could fit away. “We’re thinking of eight quarters, meaning there’s room for improvement if the tour of France might not succeed perfectly. The important thing is not to end with a result that could cause nervousness in the rematch. ”

However, the OSC is the chance

“In terms of strength, we are growing above the French team, we see ourselves as one of the chances of the European Cup, hence the team’s self-imposed expectation is to advance. We represent a quality and our goal is to show as much of it as possible in the pool. ”

During the absolutely unusual season, Dani Varga and his team had to struggle with a number of difficulties, as after the quarantine period due to the coronavirus, the team was subjected to a terrible match load, which was followed by another shutdown, this time due to holidays and national teams. Dani said he was actually wondering what form the OSC would play in.

“In situations like this, boys are usually a pleasant surprise, I’m confident it will be the case now.” said the former world-class laughing. “We’ve been back and forth a bit in recent weeks, in the January-February period we could only measure where we’re really going in the match against BVSC because we brought our other matches pretty smoothly.”

Thus, with several members of the team appearing for the national team, the training and preparation became different at the OSC. “We tried to get the most out of the situation and did some groundwork in recent weeks. I am sure it will be of interest in the spring and will be needed, because we will soon reach the crucial period of the season. ”

The OSC will begin its appearance on February 27, starting at 6 p.m., in the straight knockout stage of the Euro Cup. There are several star teams in the extremely strong series, and OSC won’t have an easy time getting to the top eight.
