Now it is getting the Swiss, which had previously never been in the European Cup against a German Team, to do with the Ukrainians.
The Concord needed goals – many goals. Hütter thought prepared his Team very well. "The team is hot," he said. But from the kick-off was to see that it was missing the Frankfurt game of Luck.
