“Honestly: I lack the imagination of how Magdeburg should be out of hand. You have a very broad squad with many options and scary a lot of confidence. You will not be able to take that anymore,” said Hens of the German press Agency before the top game between the SCM and defending champion THW Kiel this Saturday (18.00 o’clock / ARD and SKY).
With 44: 2 points Magdeburg leads the league in front of Kiel (38:10) and the Füchense Berlin (35: 9). For Hens who was World Champion with the DHB selection in 2007 and, among other things, works as an expert for the pay-TV channel Sky, this constellation is somewhat surprising. “I did not expect that they march so sovereign,” he said.
Kiel “not so constant”
In the top game, the former backpart player who celebrates his 42nd birthday on Saturday, but the Magdeburger but not necessarily in the favorite role. “Kiel did not make it so constant this season as you are used to it from them. But those are able to beat every opponent in every game. If you have your shape and get your performance, is the absolute world class”, Hens said about the record champion.
