Head coach Gábor Elek and the rest of the handball division at Ferencváros expected a very tough game against Bietigheim in the women’s Champions League. Although the arena was fully packed in Érd and the Fradi ladies fought with their heart and soul, it felt in the beginning that they are not able to take the lead. With incredible efforts in the 21st minute Schatzl Nadine scored again for Fradi and created the 11-10 result. What’s more, by half time Fradi had a four-goal advantage. The team could not rest because the German team closed up again in the second half and most of the times the difference remained one or two goals. In the last 10 minutes the Germans even turned the result and the Fradi ladies had to fight with double the effort to turn in the end-play. They did it with the superb performance of Nerea Pena, Gréta Márton and Anikó Kocsacsics! With this win Fradi is very close to go through to the next round.
