IFK Kristianstad (SWE) vs C.S. Dinamo Bucuresti (ROU) 31:22 (16:12)
A very strong defence helped by the Espen Christensen goalkeeping wall, was complemented by an inspired offence which meant that Swedish side IFK Kristianstad found victory at home to take their first EHF European League Men victory of the season.
And for the second consecutive European game, right back Anton Halén proved to be at a very high level, scoring six, to add to his five in the away loss at Berlin last week.
I am very happy about the victory and the way we played, we were good defensively and had quick counter attacks. We showed today that we can play well against good teams.
