"He and I have played many games against each other. The only difference is that this time, he (Stas) is favourite as he plays in a bigger team. Of course, I am looking forward to playing against him, though. It will be awesome," Sebastian Skube told Bjerringbro-Silkeborg's official website.
While Pick Szeged are in the Last 16 for the third time in succession, it is the first time in four years Bjerringbro-Silkeborg have made it this far. Apart from playmaker Stas Skube, right back Zsolt Balogh, left wing Jonas Källman and line player Bence Banhidi have been on fire for Szeged lately.
Bjerringbro-Silkeborg are hampered by injuries to right wing Johan Hansen, playmaker Allan Damgaard and second goalkeeper Sebastian Frandsen.
