Victory as the Olympians return to action
On Saturday afternoon, Paris Saint-Germain Handball took part in their second pre-season outing. After their victory in midweek against Créteil (31-36), the capital club was hosting Skjern this time, at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin.
Despite the return of the internationals who had participated in the Olympic Games, the Danish side got off to the better start. Defensively solid, the visitors hit expertly on the counter and took the lead.
A few moments later, however, the Parisian machine kicked into gear, sparking a fight-back that got Raul Gonzalez's men moving in the right direction once more.
Les Rouge et Bleu continued to grow in strength and got back on level terms just before the break.
After half-time, the Parisians were still as skilful as ever, with Kamil Syprzak getting his side three goals to the good in style.
After taking most of the first half to find their feet, our players started to look much more at ease in every sector and took control of the match...
Paris were defending better (thanks also to several saves by Yann Genty) and attacking with aplomb, making it little surprise that they were in the lead heading into the final five minutes.
Paris Saint-Germain Handball refused to concede their advantage and ran out 34-28 winners over Skjern in their second pre-season match. Two games await them next week, with a trip to Chartres on Friday and the visit of Dunkerque on Saturday.
