Future Paris Saint-Germain Handball opponents Kielce played host to Meshkov Brest with a view to keeping pace with Flensburg at the top of the table. Mission accomplished!

From the outset, they put the Hungarians on the back foot, limiting them to just ten goals in the first half(30': 15-10). Although the match became more balanced after the break, it was nonetheless a bridge too far for Szeged, who conceded a second defeat in as many matches while Porto moved into the upper reaches of the table. Once again, 'keeper Nikola Mitrevski was heroic, saving shots at the incredible rate of 47%!
Vardar Skopje - Flensburg: 31-26
