Summary: Metz win MOTW; Györ and Esbjerg on top of their groups
The EHF Champions League Women 2023/24 bows out for 2023 this weekend as it reaches round 8, ahead of the women's international break for the 2023 IHF Women's World Championship. The weekend's matches are all mirror images of round 7, giving teams a second chance against sides they just met. The highlight is Match of the Week from Metz, after the French side beat Krim 28:22 last week in Slovenia.
We showed more discipline than in the first game. We showed good energy and from the first minute we knew what we wanted. I am proud of my team and we are going to the break after winning two important points.
We played a really good match as we did in Sweden. I have told my girls several times that they have the spirit so we have to keep playing and we know they are a team with a lot of potential and if we stop fighting then they will come back.
It was a very intense game. There were a lot of similar things to last week, and a lot of different ones. I think we found solutions for last week’s problem in defence, and in offence as well. Today my players were calm and disciplined, that’s why we could win.
