Day review 2: Füchse, Löwen win top clashes to close round 3
Round 3 of the group matches in the EHF European League Men brought more wins for the German sides, as Rhein-Neckar Löwen and Füchse Berlin followed into TSV Hannover-Burgdorf's and SG Flensburg-Handewitt’s footsteps and delivered their third wins in as many matches in the competition.
Reigning champions Füchse stood tall, in spite of their fatigue from the IHF Super Globe adventure in Saudi Arabia last week, and sealed a 33:30 win over Dinamo Bucuresti. Löwen made it three out of three in a goal fest against Benfica, after Niclas Vest Kirkeløkke scored the winning goal with his 14th of the evening in the last second: 36:35.
We are really happy with the result in the end. We played very good in the first 45 minutes but then they played 7x6 and scored every attack they had. We are lucky to get the win.
I am very happy with my team tonight and of course for playing 60 minutes. This was fun, but also really hard. I had some pauses (at the IHF Super Globe) in Saudi Arabia, so I could give everything tonight.
Honestly, I felt that ABC didn't play a very good match and I think they can play much better than this. We were able to control the match through fast breaks and take the lead and the victory.
