The women water polo team of Olympiakos has set high goals. The white-reds, who are currently ranked in the eight best teams in Europe, are determined to fight for their next goal - to enter the TOP four of Europe. After 11 years the team of Olympiakos managed to rise again at the top in Greece and it comes as no surprise to anyone that they are now looking ahead to reach higher peaks.

In order to enter the TOP four in women's water polo in Europe, the white-reds will have to win against the Spanish team - Sabadell. The first game between Sabadell and Olympiakos will be played in Spain, and the second in Athens, in Piraeus. According to the experienced player from the team of the white-reds Stavroula Andonakou draw for both teams will be like a trampoline – whoever wins will automatically enter the next ranking.

Andonakou is optimistic about the upcoming games and feels that both teams have equal chances to win. According to her the fact that most players from Sabadell are of foreign origin, should not bother anyone. She even believes that Olympiakos has a great advantage, because it had played more games in the league Cup in Europe than the opposing team. Andonakou believes the Spanish is team very good, but feels the white-reds be able to win the match.

The goal of the Piraeus team is to show a serious, coordinated and focused game. According to the athlete no victory predictions can be made, because when sports matches reach such high level, things are usually unspecified and anything can happen. The goal, however, always remains the victory and in the case of Olympiakos this means to win against Sabadell and to enter the TOP four best teams in Europe.
