After a severe setback in the league, the Paris SG handball players perfectly corrected the situation on Wednesday in the Champions League, outclassing Magdeburg, reigning German champions, 29 to 22 for the 3rd day of the group stage. Stung after a heavy defeat in the Starligue in the Toulouse room (35-27), Raul Gonzalez’s players, deprived of their master to play Nikola Karabatic positive for Covid-19, were keen to immediately get back on the path to victory. PSG now have the same record as their opponent of the day, with four points (two wins and one loss) at the start of the group stage. Only the Hungarians of Veszprem, who felled Luka Karabatic’s teammates on the first day, are at 6 points with three victories.
To overcome the club three times European champion (1978, 1982, 2002), the Parisians were able to count on their Danish goalkeeper Jannick Green, who found the hall in eastern Germany, where he played for eight seasons until the end of the last season. Green almost saved half of Magdeburg’s shots in the first half with 9 saves from 19 attempts (11 saves in the end), to keep his opponents at just ten but registered in one half. In attack, the Spanish winger of PSG Ferran Sole was almost perfect in the first thirty minutes with five goals from seven attempts.
