Main Round

Group II

CSM Bucuresti still has a lot of injured players: Neagu, Kurtovic , Jakobsen, Mehmedovic and now Lekic is also missing from the squad.

Krim had the lead throughout the entire first half, going to the pause with 12-11.

In the second half CSM Bucuresti seemed to struggle even more as in the first one, and the hosts had gained a seven-goal lead, when the result was 20 -13 fro Krim in the 48.minute of the match. Stanko, Tsakalou and mostly goalkeeper Marincek caused trouble for the Romanians, meanwhile, CSM Bucuresti had Curea, Lazovic, and Omoregie to keep them in the match.

Despite a big fight from Bucuresti in the last ten minutes of the match, Krim managed to keep one small goal from their advantage and won the game, producing a big surprise of this round.

The defeat can cost a lot for the Romanian team in terms of their quarter-final opponent.

Krim Mercator – CSM Bucuresti 23 – 22 (12 – 11)

Topscorers: Tjasa Stanko (Krim) 8 goals and Iulia Curea (CSM) 9 goals
