Reading time : 1 min.
After a convincing first outing against Croatia (27-22) on Thursday, the Blues will try to confirm against Ukraine on Saturday January 15 at 6 p.m. The French team, Olympic champion in title, is largely favorite of their second match of group C. In front of them, draw up the Ukrainians at the back of the pack. Beaten by Serbia on Thursday (31-23), they are already back to the wall and must get a result against the Blues to stay alive.
For Nikola Karabatic’s teammates, there were many reasons for satisfaction against Croatia and a victory on Saturday would already bring them closer to the main round. The Blues have a perfect record against the Ukrainians: five wins in five games, but they have not faced this selection since 2007.
