ROUND REVIEW: Two Russian teams already in the quarter-finals of the Women's EHF Cup with a few more close to following them.
14 goals from Augustesen bring København close to quarter-final
København Håndbold´s left winger Mie Augustesen had a great afternoon in the EWS Arena in Göppingen Sunday.
14 goals or more than a quarter of all the goals scored in the match did the Danish international score, as she and her teammates from København Håndbold defeated Frisch Auf Göppingen 25:22 in the first leg of the two teams' tie in the last 16.
The Danes were even leading by seven at half time, and the result obviously leaves them with fine chances to proceed to the quarter-final, when the German team visits Frederiksberg Hallen in Copenhagen next Sunday.
No less than 28:21 did Esbjerg win the first leg away against the Black Angels from the Czech Republic Sunday evening.
The hosts were leading 12:11 at half time, but not even the support from the 1250 spectators in the Sportovni hala was enough to stop the visitors from dominating the second half completely.
“It should not cause us any problems to proceed in the tournament, and I really think we play a fine game against them. Actually, it is the best I have seen in a long time, and it is very positive that we managed to limit their score to 21 goals,” Esbjerg coach Lars Frederiksen told the Danish newspaper JyskeVestkysten.
Astrakhanochka had the least trouble as they eliminated Spanish Elche C.F. Mustang 73:44 on aggregate at home after winning 40:21 Saturday and 33:23 Sunday.
Lada were also in home court this weekend and sent another Spanish team, Rocasa Gran Canaria out with 56:44 on aggregate (30:28 and 26:16).
