DELO Women’s EHF Champions League

Group B

Round 4

Team Esbjerg took a 3-6 lead, after a storming start on Rostovs home-court and in the first 20 minutes of the match, it looked like that the Russians will have problems once again when facing the Danish champion. Estevana Polman was unstoppable for Danes and Rostov had no Lois Abbingh or Galina Mekhdieva on the start list. Ambros Martin started the game with an unusual defensive system with Kalinichenko and Nikitina. Sen and Vyakhireva were not playing until the last third of the first half, but with their contribution (Sen 3 goals, Vyakhireva 2 goals, and three assists), Rostov Don managed to come back and level the game at 11-11 (after 5-9 lead for guests) and quickly take the lead first after 23 minutes in the game, 13-12. Half time: 16 – 13.

In the second half, Rostov showed a very focused defense, improved goalkeeper performance and a more fluent attack such as the Russians managed to run over Esbjerg, winning confidently 34-26.
