Podravka: time to rest

It was a tough playing schedule for Podravka Vegeta: Champions League, Women's Regional Handball League, Croatian Championship and Croatian Cup! The hard period did not pass without injuries for some of the key Croatian players. Captain Miranda Tatari has a flu and top scorer Andrea Penezić suffers from a shoulder injury right now. Both of them are expected to be ready for the decisive matches in January.

Tatari will be back in the team soonThe severe defeat suffered in Trondheim showed how important Penezić for team is. Podravka Vegeta is simply not the same team without her.

Penezić in top form

Despite playing only three matches out of four, Andrea Penezić is still the best scorer of the CL with 32 goals. The Croatian back player also holds record of most goals scored in one match – 13 (Leipzig vs. Podravka).

Coach Zdravko Zovko will use the CL break to recover the players of his team and to prepare for two important matches in January. Even one victory (depending on other results) could be enough for the Croatians for the Main Round.
