Aalborg, Kielce and Magdeburg had to sweat to snatch the precious two points in Wednesday’s round 6 matches in the Machineseeker EHF Champions League, but the three sides did just enough to snatch the wins and improve their chances in the do-or-die battles for the top two places in each group.

In the Match of the Week, Aalborg took early control of the match and delivered a classy 27:25 win against Kolstad, where Sander Sagosen shined, scoring 10 goals.

We are very happy about the win. We had some trouble in the last couple of matches finding the right performance. Here in our own arena we showed once again that we can expect a lot from this team. I am so proud on how the guys fought for 60 minutes.

It was a tough away game for us. A great atmosphere. Aalborg played a great game. A strong defence and Niklas Landin was very good so it was tough for us.

It was not easy to play against the European runners-up. The respect we had at the start gave us a negative result. After 2-9 we had to do everything to get back into the game. In the second half, we had a furious start, Lesjak was fantastic and our 7-on-6 attack was the key to comeback in the match.

Great experience to play here, against motivated team and great fans. Our quality and character was the key. We deserve this points and I am happy to win again after home draw against Szeged.

We are disappointed with the result. We showed a lot of physical and mental commitment, but technically we didn’t maintain our level over the whole game. We missed 10 shots at 10 meters. We have to learn that a match lasts 60 minutes and we have to be consistent over the whole game.

Patrice Canayer
Head coach, Montpellier Handball
I’m proud on our eighth consecutive win, we are gaining in confidence and the momentum is returning. A special mention for Nikola Portner, with 40% of saves this was a special match for him and he showed what he can do.
