Thursday’s match between SC DHfK Leipzig and Rhein-Neckar Löwen will be bitter for Luca Witzke. The 23-year-old player is set to miss the game due to a torn capsule on his left shoulder, a painful injury that has also forced him to miss international matches against Denmark.
Witzke, who is one of Leipzig’s playmakers, is a key player for the team and a fierce competitor for Juri Knorr, the shooting star of the Rhein-Neckar Löwen team.
The absence of Witzke means that the much-anticipated duel between the national team directors is now officially cancelled, leaving fans disappointed. Witzke recently spoke about the competition between him and Knorr, saying that they complement each other well and have developed in the direction of the home European Championship.
Despite missing Witzke and Oskar Sunnefeldt, who is out due to a broken foot, DHfK Leipzig still managed to win sensationally in Kiel. The team hopes to replicate its success as it takes on Rhein-Neckar Löwen in its upcoming match.
Witzke’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the team, as he has been a key player for them this season. However, the team remains optimistic about its chances and is determined to play its best against the leaders of the league.
