Smarason: “I knew that I could deliver fast”
Titleholders SC Magdeburg are on a seven-game winning streak in the Machineseeker EHF Champions League, and a 19-game winning streak across all competitions. But their Icelandic centre back Janus Dadi Smarason does not take anything for granted ahead of the away game at FC Porto on Thursday (7 December), the last Match of the Week in 2023.
I know amazing players that have played in the Champions League only twice in their career, so I’m really thankful at the moment. It’s often a matter of being in the right place at the right time, and that is what is happening to me right now.
