Elverum beat Montpellier – Besiktas remain undefeated in Bucharest!

HBC Nantes and Naturhouse La Rioja leading the “lower part” Group C and D of the VELUX EHF Champions League. The biggest surprise in Round 3 was made by Norwegian Elverum, who beat French Montpellier 32:31 (18:16) with Pujol and Mehl in the main roles with seven goals.

This can be called a disaster for the team with over 7.000.000 EUR budget, which can’t be comparable with any of their rivals in Group C and D, but certainly making Montpellier a TOP 10 teams in Europe in this moment.

Naturhouse La Rioja beat Tatran Presov 33:27, while Chekhovskie Medved outplayed RK Metalurg 25:21.

1. Naturhouse La Rioja 3 2 1 0 92 : 85 (7) 5
