Bold victory for Kobenhavn over Cisnadie

Kobenhavn Handball have bounced back in impressive style from losing their first two matches in the Women's EHF Cup group phase. The Danish side defeated Magura Cisnadie by a double-digit margin (33:22) to keep their quarter-final hopes alive.

  • Cisnadie are still looking for their first group phase win in nine games, including last season
  • Kobenhavn’s world champion right wing Debbie Bont netted nine goals
  • six players scored three or more goals for Kobenhavn
  • Ada Emilie Moldova was Cisnadie's top scorer for the third consecutive game with six goals

Pivot Linn Blohm from Kobenhavn was ecstatic in the beginning as she scored three goals in the first 10 minutes. The home team quickly developed a comfortable lead as Cisnadie did not reach 10 goals until half-time.

Everything remained the same in the second part of the game as the away club did not come closer. Although they did not miss any attempt on goal, the eight two-minute suspensions against Kobenhavn’s one set them back.

In the 47th minute the gap turned to 10 goals and as Dutch right wing Debbie Bont never missed a shot, the result was known long before the final whistle.

The teams will face each other again in the next round in Romania.

Kobenhavn coach Claus Mogensen said his team "delivered a really nice match, and if the keeper for Magura was not as good as she was, we could have won bigger, so big credit to her."

"We were very disciplined in the defense and fast breaks, which satisfies me," Mogensen added. "The match had a lot of nerve, and I am glad to see the team staying calm during it."
