Start right for Minaur in the EHF European League!

Minaur Baia Mare started with a victory in the EHF European League groups, 34-32 (18-14) with the leader from Poland, Zaglebie Lubin.
With Laslo, A.Popa, Fujita and Lavko in good shape, Baia Mare always found solutions in attack, but suffered in the defensive phase. The Poles led 8-6 in the 10th minute, but Raul Fotonea’s team broke away until the break: 18-14.

Băimărencele maintained their lead until the 51st minute (29-26), but the guest returned to the game and equalized, 29-29. However, the last minutes of the game belong to Minaur, who prevails with 34-32 and obtains a precious victory, which places her with real chances in the fight for qualification.

Minaur’s coach, Raul Fotonea, emphasizes that he is following an infernal program, with matches every 3 days. “The championship and the EHF groups are different competitions and we will have to reconnect for each week, from now until the end of February, because we have a lot of matches, also every 3-4 days. I knew that the Polish team would fight for every ball, that it would play fast. He ran a lot and I had a lot of work “said Fotonea.

Anca Polocoșer wants her team to continue the series of victories. “It was a difficult match. We really wanted to win this match and in the end it worked out, but it was hard, very hard. It’s a strong team, it wasn’t even the easiest start. But we know that we want to continue with the victories “. In the other Group B game, Bietigheim won away with Nantes, 27-25.
