After losing 33:27 at home in round 7 last week, Aalborg Håndbold took revenge against Telekom Veszprém HC and turned the tide after three straight defeats – 30:32 (16:19).
The Danish champions handed Veszprém their first defeat in the EHF Champions League Men this season and their first defeat in an EHF Champions League home match since 3 November 2018 (28:29 against Rhein-Neckar Löwen).
Aalborg had a brilliant start and led 14:7 thanks to a strong performance from goalkeeper Simon Gade and three goals from Henrik Møllgaard. Veszprém’s last lead was 2:1 – but they came close to equalizing at 21:22 and in the last minute at 30:31. Petar Nenadic missed the final chance for Veszprém to equalize; then Buster Juul-Lassen netted for Aalborg just before the final buzzer.
