Győr arrived in France without Jelena Despotovic and Kari Brattset Dale, missing due to pregnancy and Silje Solberg due to illness. Brest cannot use Durdina Jaukovic because injury.

Brest had a better first half, having the lead for thirty minutes, and finished the first half 11-8. Sandra Toft made a fantastic job in the goal, stressing out the shooters of Győr. Foppa was unstoppable on the line for Brest, Kobylinska and Fauske scored often, even if Laura Glauser had a very good game in the Hungarian goal. Győr seemed to use more time than usual to find the pace in their attack, missing too many opportunities, and players like Oftedal, Blohm, or Hansen struggled to score.

In the second half, Győr managed to improve their defensive system and score fast goals, being very close to Brest. Kristiansen, Ryu, and Nze Minko netted for the guests, and Leynaud made an amazing second half in the goal for Győr, making trouble for the French side. Győr leveled the game at 18-18, and took the lead 18-19 with two goals from Hansen, but the match ended 21-21.

It will be an exciting second leg next weekend in Győr to decide which of the two teams will go to the Final4 in Budapest.
