Rostov Don and Brest Bretagne both needed the victory in this match: if Brest could collect two points here, the group would still be open until the last round, when Rostov plays on home court against FCM and Brest travels to Győr. In the first half Rostov was constantly in lead by 2.3 goals, but before the break, Brest managed to level the game 14-14 and the halftime result was 14-15. In the second half, Brest could not continue the good flow and Rostov managed to get a more substantial advantage, winning 23-29 and securing the qualification to the Main Round. Next round the match between Rostov and FC Midtjylland will be crucial in order to which team can collect points against each other to take with to the next stage.
