FTC continue resurgence as Czech side concedes sixth loss in a row
After conceding their biggest loss in history in the EHF Champions League Women one month ago, 20:40 against SG BBM Bietigheim, FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria look back to their best, setting a new three-game unbeaten streak, with a thorough show of dominance against DHK Banik Most.
The Hungarian side scored more goals in the first half than in three of their previous five matches, as they were unstoppable, posting an 81% shot efficiency, that translated to the best attacking performance in their history.
On the other side, Most lost their sixth consecutive game in this edition and their challenge to progress to the play-offs looks harder round by round, with their best result being a five-goal loss against Brest, the other five being losses by ten goals or more.
We already knew that this match will be very fast with a lot of running, so we were prepared exactly for this and I am glad that we have won with this difference.
