With a solid defense it seemed impossible for Kielce to get enough goals to decide it in their favour. And the total goalscore, 28-23, shows that it was two defending teams that met in the first semifinal qualifying for the final in Champions League.
Bogdan Wenta tried every tactical move, even removing the goalkeeper and replace him with an extra man did not succeed.
Both teams will meet a German team tomorrow. Which team we’ll know after the second semifinal is decided later tonight.
