Hosts are preparing for their next CL match, which is a decisive one,against Romanians from Oltchim, regarding the qualification to the semifinals of CL.
Győr could not control the game as they are used to do, Tomori was outstanding for FTC and an outsold arena, full of vociferous fans helped both team to follow each other and to offer an unforgettable spectacle.
A frightening moment has stopped the match for more minutes when a local fan fall from the stands right to the Győr’s bench, landing on a …sitting player, left winger Ivett Szepesi, who has suffered a minor back injury when the 80-90 kg man fall over her. Fortunately the problem and the injury was not so serious, but the security of some Hungarian halls is not acceptable.
