Konstantin Papazov: The game vs Galil Gilboa will be very important and very good for us - Dec 3, 2012

On Thursday, the 6th of December, Levski Sofia will host Galil Gilboa. The game is from group A of the EUROHOLD Balkan League and is expected with huge interest because it is a rematch of last season′s final. The game will be broadcast live in both countries - Bulgarian BNT World and Israeli ONE. Here is what the head coach of Levski - Konstantin Papazov - had to say just a few days before the match:

"It is potentially a partial revenge for the final of EUROHOLD Balkan League that we lost last season. Both teams are very different comapared to when they played in that game but it will remain in the history as a very good final, a very interesting one and of course - a very sad one for us.

Once again we have set a goal for ourselves to reach the highest level in the competition or at least to repeat the final. The realization of that goal goes through a victory in Sofia. Without doubt those are the two most serious names in the league - the champion and the finalist from last season - and we have to defend that position. This requires for us to give it our maximum effort and I think there is no doubt we will do that. After the loss to Rilski Sportist we made a lot of conclusions that helped us and despite playing against the lesser teams in our league we could see the difference in aggression and attitude of the players during the games. For sure the aggression is changed in a very big way after the game against Rilski and not only during training but we can see it during games as well. I′m hoping this will help us. We haven′t played in our gym for a very long time and we are coming back home. I believe that we will succeed. This will be a very important and a good game for us.

Galil Gilboa has a very different roster with a lot of new American players and after a bad start they are now doing better. In their games in the EUROHOLD Balkan League they control the gamen flow well and as champions it is normal for them to try and defend their name. The team had some changes since the start of the season and had two straight wins in the Israeli league after losing 6 games in a row before that. I′m sure it it′s going to be a very tough game. We have a lot of video from their games and I have no doubt in the work of my assistants and their analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of Galil Gilboa. We start our work from today. We will try to limit the strengths of our opponent and try to use their weaknesses to hurt them.

I′m convinced that the good spirit in the Blue fans has returned after the two nice wins by the football team and they will have no problem to attend this game on Thursday. I also have information that the football players of Levski may come to the game as well but it depends on their schedule for the week. For us it′s very important to bring back the fans to the arena and this can happen only with us playing well."
