Metz edge closer to EHF FINAL4 after beating FTC
In the first leg of the EHF Champions League Women quarter-finals in Budapest, Hatadou Sako's strong display between the posts secured Metz Handball a 32:26 win over FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria. Ahead of the reverse fixture in France, not only did Metz come closer to their third EHF FINAL4 appearance, they also extended their winning streak to ten. FTC, on the other hand, ended their four-game unbeaten streak and will have to produce their best game of the season if they want to overcome the odds next Sunday.
I am happy, but this was only the first match, the duel is not over yet, we all know Ferencváros is a great team. We have to prepare for the second match in the same way,
I'm disappointed, I feel that the six-goal difference is too much. We have a big work ahead of us next week, but of course we will try our best. I congratulate to Metz and many thanks to the fans for the atmosphere they created today.
