Women’s EHF Champions League

Group D

Round 6


  • Both teams were qualified to the Main Round, but this match will decide the number of points both teams will collect to take with into the next stage. Vipers have two points won against CSM Bucuresti and FTC has two collected in Hungary against today’s opponent

  • The first half: Katrine Lunde intimidates FTC players from the 7-meter line, Sulland is unstoppable for Vipers, but the defense worked only for periods for both teams.

  • Ole Gustav Gjekstad is not satisfied in the pause, he will fix and improve Vipers defensive system for the second half.
  • The second half started better for hosts and continued fantastic also for the hosts from Vipers, where they managed to score 15 goals. Reistad, Yttereng, and Sulland were the most efficient Vipers players. FTC had problems in defense and with the job in returns, Vipers managed to score several goals on a fastbreak. The best FTC -player was Noemi Hafra, netting seven and line player Rea Meszaros scoring five.
