HCM Baia Mare –  Metz Handball 23 – 24 (12 – 10)

Topscorers: Valentina Ardean Elisei-Ksenia Makeeva (HCM Baia Mare) 5 goals each and Grace Zaadi-Ana Gros (Metz) 6 goals each

In a match with a huge tension Baia Mare had already grabed the lead after the first half, but Romanian team had problems in goals (five shoots saved troughout the match together by Ungureanu and Arenhart) and struggled to transform the seven meter penalties (they missed three times).

Metz presented a well organised team-play, even if Liscevic was injured, they managed to stay close hosts in the first half and with a good defense and a decent goalkeeper performance by Laura Glauser they overturned the result and won the match, which means for French team to qualify to the Main Round, with four points (all of them earned against Romanians).

Baia Mare had to wait the match between Larvik and Lublin, they needed a Larvik-victory to qualify.

Larvik HK – MKS Selgros Lublin  35 – 24 (20 -10)

Topscorers: Nora Mörk (Larvik HK) 9 goals and Jessica Da Silva Quintino (Lublin ) 6 goals

Larvik, Metz and Baia Mare are in the Main Round, with 8, 4 and 0 points.

There will be paired with three teams coming from group C (Győr, Viborg and probably Savehof).
