Day review 1: Three teams secure main round spot in early matches
The penultimate round in the group matches of the EHF European League Men 2023/24 started Tuesday with three more teams securing their place in the main round: Górnik Zabrze in group A, Vojvodina in F, and CSM Constanta in H won their matches in the early time slot to extend their stay in the competition beyond next week's final round 6.
Elsewhere, IK Sävehof and Füchse Berlin added a fifth win and locked up top spot in their respective group. But TSV Hannover-Burgdorf failed to make it five out of five, held to a 30:30 draw by already eliminated HC Kriens-Luzern.
Seven more matches are played in the late time slot Tuesday.
In the second half, AEK played well both in defence and attack, and they were close to levelling the score. It was good match and we enjoyed the game. I want to congratulate my players for the victory and for qualifying to the next phase.
It was a very great result for us. We had an amazing attack and Joaquim Nazaré delivered a top performance. We are very happy now and look forward to end the group matches in a good way in Bystrica next week.
I am very happy because we have been working together as a team to achieve this qualification since many years. I felt that the level of the EHF European League is the highest we can achieve and we have to keep this pace.
It was a very fun game to play and it was the type of match that suits me. We ran on a lot of counter attacks and since I’m a fast player, I could score a lot of easy goals.
