Champions League newbie, German champion from Bietigheim traveled to Podgorica in order to play their first ever match in the Women’s EHF Champions League. Bietigheim has a strong squad, with big names and everybody expected at least a close match, where Germans will dominate somehow the team full of young players.

But Buducnost helped by Darly Zoqbi de Paula with a fantastic goalkeeper performance and the efficiency of the young black player, Djurdina Jaukovic –  managed to take the lead from the very first moment and Bietigheim never managed to come close during the match. The first half ended with a seven-goal advantage, 17 – 10 for hosts.

In the second part the difference was as big as in the first, in the last ten minutes Bietigheim managed to close the gap with a comeback to four goals, but the team of Dragan Adzic won easily and clearly their opening match in the group stage.

Final result:

Buducnost – SG BBM Bietigheim 32 – 24 (17 – 10)


Buducnost – Jaukovic 9, Raicevic 6, Malovic 5, Premovic 4, Brnovic 2, Ramusovic 2, Ujkic 2, Godec 1, Grbic 1
