The second match in NRGI Arena Århus seemed to be more a warm up for the french team that won easily agaimst a leaking russian team.
It was very early in the match no doubt that it was going to be two points to Nikola Karabatic and his team mates. Together with his brother Luka Karabatic they made a wall in the middle defense that that the russian several times tried to pass with their shots, but they ended in the block of the Karabatic brothers.
In the other end of the field Russia had no chance to stop the high jumping french players to get their shot at goal and in the net.
And, with an average of 19% saves from the two russian goalkeepers it’s hard to win a handball match against a french team that seems to be in good shape.
Our guess is that in this match we watched the top and bottom of group C.
