FEATURE: Dortmund’s top star Alina Grijseels will join Metz next season, but now hopes for her first international trophy at Graz

When BV Borussia 09 Dortmund lost the first quarter-final leg of the EHF European League Women 19:28 against Nantes, Alina Grijseels was on the match report, but could not play due to an injury. It was not clear whether she could be part of the re-match.

But a week later the team captain was back on track, making a significant impression and standing out in an incredible team performance. Grijseels’ nine goals paved the way to Graz in a sensational comeback: Dortmund won 32:22 and qualified for the EHF Finals Women. This underlines the significance of the 27-year-old Dortmund and German national team playmaker, who now reaches out for her first international trophy in Graz.
