SCM Ramnicu Valcea (ROU) vs SG BBM Bietigheim (GER) 34:27 (20:18)
There was little defence played by the two sides until the break, as the high-octane, intense action Valcea rode their luck and took back the lead, 20:18, enjoying a superb 80 per cent shot efficiency.
Boasted by a 5:1 run to start the second half, spurred by Brazilian back Samara da Silva, Valcea took off and never looked back.
Valcea led by as many as seven goals in the second half, yet their lack of depth and experience brought back Bietigheim in the game.
