In this week opener in Slovakia on Tuesday, the hosts Tatran Presov did not let the new 3 points escape. Celebrating over Gorenje Velenje with the high 34:30 win, Taran are now only one win away from climbing up the table, which could make them reach the golden mean in this season’s SEHA League standings.
For the second match of the week, Telekom Veszprem faced Meshkov Brest in the famous Veszprem Arena. In the fire atmosphere, Veszprem cruised past Meshkov winning 31:30 in a ’til-the-last-second narrow match. This win has resulted in Veszprem now passing to the second place on the League’s table, which had, until Tuesday’s encounter, belonged to the Belarusians.
In the match played in Skopje, Metalurg have discontinued their losing strike after hosting Izvidjac CO on Tuesday. This +14 win (36:22) catapulted the Macedonian vice-champions to the seventh place on the table, just above Nexe and Tatran Presov, but also Izvidjac who have once again, after their eighth match this season, been left with no points whatsoever.
