In Group 3, Thursday marked the beginning of the qualification matches. Serbia met Faroe Islands in Petrovac na Mlavi. After a long time spent away from the national team, Katarina Tomasevic and Andrea Lekic made their comeback in the EHF EURO series. In the beginning of the match, a little more concentration was missing from the home side and the first minutes passed without a goal. After surviving the first goalless minutes, Serbia opened up the gap with a 7-0. Faroe Islands scored their first goal after 13 minutes, but after the first goal scored, they became more confident and closed up to the Serbs. In the first half, Katarina Krpez Slezak and Andrea Lekic had a private competition for the top scorer position, and despite some better minutes from the guests, Serbia’s lead was confident after the first half (16-9). In the second half, the two teams weren’t on the same level, Serbia was clearly superior as expected. Even both Serbian goalkeepers, Katarina Tomasevic and Marija Colic scored. Serbia won 36-20 in the end.

In the other match of the group, Sweden took a confident victory against Macedonia in Lund.
