The match started with a close fight, where both teams tried to grab the lead. Both Győr and CSM had a one-goal lead several times, but hosts got a two-goal advantage for the pause, 13-11. For Győr Tomori, Groot and Mörk were the main goalscorers, meanwhile, Bucuresti had Neagu, Kurtovic, and Hagman. In the second half, CSM had a smoother and more effective attacking play, Niombla, Neagu, Kurtovic, Hagman or Mehmedovic made all a good game. Ambros Martin had no players to replace with the first line, in addition, the  Hungarian team made a lot of mistakes and turnovers. Goalkeeper performance at Győr’s side was on a lower level, neither Kiss or Grimsbö could help their team, on the other side Ungureanu had some better periods, stopping several Győr-attacks.
