In the first match of the final day in Oviedo, Norway beat Hungary 28:26, whereas in the next game Spain beat Poland 33:28. The first half was very tight; Spain was a little bit better for 15 minutes but then Poles took the lead and left court leading 14:13. Both teams tried to play fast, they played very well in attack and both had problems with their defences so spectators saw numerous – and often quickly scored – goals.
In the second half Poland continued their good performance until 46. minute when they led by 4 goals (26:22). From that point Spain started coming from behind; Poles were having problems with getting through the Spanish defence and were unable to score for a couple of minutes while Spain took the lead. Poland kept playing poorly until the final whistle and ended up losing by 5 goals.
