Larvik Hk arrived in Montenegro with a very weakened squad as they had to play without six of their injured players: Sandra Toft, Sanna Solberg, Thea Mörk, Amanda Kurtovic, Alina Wojtas, Vilde Johansen. Without a real left wing and right back every handball fan could estimate the chances of Norwegians against a very motivated Buducnost, with Neagu and Bulatovic on the backline.
The match started balanced, Larvik was in lead at 5-6, but after a timeout from Adzic his team find the right play and won the first half 14-9. Neagu, Bulatovic, Cvijic and Zoqbi de Paula were outstanding for the home-team as Stange, Anja Hammerseng-Edin and Hasanic could be remarked for guests.
In the second half, Buducnost just ran over Larvik, leading 17-10 after only five playing minutes, Norwegians having no chance, no luck and every of their movement ended bad or was saved by Montenegrin goalkeeper. The game ended 31 – 17. which means that Buducnost is almost/already in the Final4 in Budapest.
