Siófok claimed second straight victories in EHF
Both rivals started the Group Phase with victories, so the winner of their clash in Germany would top Group B for the next week. And the two points went to the ambitious Siófok, who made an important step towards the quarter-final.

A week before, the Croatian left back Andrea Kobetic had had a great impact in the opening game against Herning-Ikast, finishing with 11 goals. At Metzingen, the 33-year-old did an even better job, scoring 13 times and contributing significantly to her team’s win.

However earlier in the game, Kobetic was outshadowed by her teammate Estelle Nze Minko. By the time Siófok led 9:7 midway through the first half, the European champion from France had already scored six goals.

The Hungarian team had a four-goal advantage at the break, and went on to dominate in the second half despite losing Simone Bohme, who netted six times before getting a red card.

Metzingen’s effort to stay in the game was in vain. Led by the unstoppable Kobetic, Siófok did not relax and went on to clinch their second victory in a row.
