Uwe Gensheimer: 'We were more consistent'
On Saturday evening, Paris Saint-Germain Handball flexed their muscles once again, claiming a ninth Velux EHF Champions League win of the campaign 38-28 at home to Skjern.
The win saw Paris Saint-Germain Handball hang onto top spot in Group B and ensure themselves of a place in the last 16 - at least. Sander Sagosen, Thierry Omeyer, Viran Morros and Uwe Gensheimer gave us their thoughts after the excellent win.
Sander Sagosen (Paris Saint-Germain Handball left-back):
"It was a tough match. We tried to stay focused and defend well. We scored 38 goals, so the attack was in perfect working order. Our defending allowed us to win despite their attacking with seven against six. We scored a lot of goals when they had no 'keeper. We're going to stay focused through to the end of the group stage to make sure everything is as it should be."
Thierry Omeyer (Paris Saint-Germain Handball 'keeper):
"We're very satisfied because we knew this could be a tough match against Skjern, who got a point from their trip to Szeged. The most important thing was to be solid at the back and play well out of defence. In attack, we were really very effective; we played well. I think we had a very high shot-to-goal ratio [83% in fact]. It was a good match and each of our players did his part. I'm very satisfied. We have a three-three-point lead over Szeged and we need to keep it rolling order to secure top spot."
Viran Morros (Paris Saint-Germain Handball defender):
"Thanks to Titi's saves, we avoided conceding a lot of goals. Last week's defeat pushed us to bounce back this time around. So that loss had a positive effect: we learned from our mistakes."
Uwe Gensheimer (Paris Saint-Germain Handball right-winger):
"Right form the beginning, we took the upper hand over Skjern and we defended really well. We\re happy with the win, especially after losing to Szeged, our main rivals. It was a huge battle tonight as we looked to hang onto top spot. We showed a lot of aggression in attack even though Skjern found solutions too easily at times. We were a lot more consistent in the second half and we made sure of the win!"
