In the second Group 3 match on Sunday Greece beat Cyprus 31:27, which sees Latvia with four points ahead of Ukraine and Greece with two points each as well as Cyprus (zero points) in the group table.

In Group 1 one the match between Lithuania and Bosnia-Herzegovina ended in a 27:27 draw. Both teams now have three points from two matches on their account.

Romania recorded their first victory when they beat Italy 35:22 in Group 2.

On Saturday Portugal became the first team to qualify for the play-offs as Group 4 was played in a tournament format and not with home and away matches.

The Qualification Europe will continue at the beginning of January with Rounds 3 and 4.
