IK Sävehof met an opponent of a completely different level in the fourth CL match. CSM Bucharest satisfied their need for points with a victory at the Partille Arena, 26-41 in the end.
Sävehof was given a series of difficult tasks shortly after the start of the match. Emilie Hegh Arntzen took a gamble and placed herself in the center. In the next attack, she established cooperation with agile new acquisition Vilde Mortensen Ingstad inside the line.
The Swedish champions began to burn their positions alarmingly and handed over the lead to Bucharest. Cornerback Trine Østergaard was also involved as the lead grew, although the visitors lacked a bit of efficiency in the first ten, Sävehof had concerns with imprecise passes and drives that did not never achieved.
Olivia Mellegård and Ida Sembe performed solidly on either side, but the home side weighed too lightly from distance with few truly dangerous situations as time went on.
After a desperate deficit, 11-22 at the halfway mark, Sävehof moved up a notch in the last 30. In total, Bucharest arrived with greater striking power and twelve different scorers.
The visitors were even able to spare Cristina Neagu in the production during the 15-goal victory that closed the first half of the Champions League.
Sävehof must lick his wounds as the group’s only scorer. Three weeks of championship matches and cup finals await you before Partillelaget returns to the Champions League at SG BBM Bietigheim.
