Important game for both teams, since this is the last chace for Danish side to take a berth in quarerfinals with a victory. If Bucuresti could not win today, they have a mandatory victory in the last home game against Győr.

CSM Bucuresti can finish on the third or  fourth in the group, if Vardar will be defeated by Buducnost and Savehof, and CSM beats Győr-third place, if Vardar makes only one point in next two matches will finish before Romanian team anyway.

Final result: 23-28
