A mammoth run of five games in the space of 10 days will come to an end for the Borussia Dortmund women's handball team on Wednesday evening. However, Henk Groener's charges face another long away trip – this time to BSV Sachsen Zwickau – in the Bundesliga. A victory against the club second-bottom in the table on Wednesday evening (19:00 CET) will make it a flawless record of five wins in close succession.

For coach Groener, the opposition's position is not important. "We take every game seriously; we'll do the same in Zwickau. We'll go there to produce a good performance and win the match," he said, clearly outlining the objective. The fact that Zwickau recently lost to second-tier Lintfort in the cup has little significance in his eyes. "The result wasn't against us; that's a different match. We will see where we can hurt Zwickau and how we can beat them."

That will be followed by a short break. "We have only one break of 10 days. We will continue to train. I'm delighted that we've come through the matches so well thus far. Now the objective is for us to win in Zwickau and make sure we play five good games in the space of 10 days. Then we'll have enough time to prepare ourselves for the next two games," said Groener, with one eye on the challenges ahead.

He is very much hoping to have Lena Hausherr involved on Wednesday, who missed the second European encounter with ZRK Zeleznicar due to illness. The trip represents a return to her old stomping ground, the left-winger having spent the last two seasons plying her trade in Zwickau. "I'm hugely looking forward to it," she admitted. "It'll be great to be back in the hall in which I trained almost every day for two years. I associate it with my first real steps in the Bundesliga."

But due to her infection, it remains unclear whether Hausherr will make an appearance on the court. "I hope that I can make the trip. It'd be very sad if I couldn't play, because I'd like to play in front of the fans in Zwickau once again. I've been looking forward to it all season," said Hausherr. Two players who will definitively be making the journey are Lyna Schwarz and Zoe Stens from the reserves, who "have recently done really well", according to Groener.

The match will commence at 19:00 CET. As always, there will be a free-of-charge stream on Sportdeutschland.TV.
