In the last round of the Main Round the already quarter-finalist Metz Handball was hosted by Russian Astrakhanochka in a match which had no impact on the result and positions of the teams in the Main Round group I.
Astrakhanocha made a good first half, leading by two goals before the break, 13-11, but in the second half Metz showed their real face, the face which smashed Vardar last weekend. The French team lead by Smites and Zaadi made a good effort and won the game by eight goals, 20-28.
