Why is waiting for something so difficult

A difficult game awaits the Basel handball players

For the first game of the third qualifying round of the 2015/2016 season, ATV / KV Basel will face the LK Zug team away from home next Saturday.

The team of the coaching duo Damian Gwerder and Peter Stutz has been the measure of all things in recent years and was able to win the double twice in a row in 2014 and 2015. This season, too, the LK Zug is considered one of the favorites for the championship title. In terms of points, they are on almost the same level as Spono and Brühl. The Zugers are not playing as dominantly this season as they were in the last two seasons, so it can be a close thing for reaching the playoff finals.

The ATV / KV Basel played 3 times against the LK Zug this season. In the first game in Zug they lost 30:20 after a good performance, the Basel women showed a very good performance in the second leg in Basel and they only lost 24-26 Day in and had to start the way home with a 37:20 clap.

Clear outsider

The LK Zug lives mainly from the trio Sybille Scherer, Lynn Schwander and Ariane Geissmann. Above all, Ariane Geissmann often makes the difference by making good use of opportunities in the district. After the heavy defeats in the last games against the teams from Nottwil and in the Cup in Zug, the Basle women showed a strong reaction a few days ago against LC Brühl after a weak first half and they lost "only" 22:27 against the current leader from St. Gallen.

The ATV / KV Basel goes into this game as a clear outsider. The Basel women should appear as they did in the second half against LC Brühl. The players should get into this game with full energy and try everything to make life difficult for LK Zug. Then a significantly better result than in the cup is certainly possible.
