In Veszprem, Hungary was the host of the first playoff game against Slovenia, one of the more interesting encounters in the Qatar 2015 qualifications. Hungary opened the game in great style taking a 3-0 lead, and had a significant lead until the 23rd minute, when Slovenia through some great play managed to equalize at 10:10. From that point onward in the first half the game was very close, and hosts went at half-time with only one goal lead, 16-15. The pace of the first half was totally lost in the second one. Hungary managed to show stronger play and good defence, conceding only 7 goals in the second half, but scoring only 9 too, thus winning the game 25:22.
Gergely Harsanyi was man of the match for the home side, scoring 9 goals from 9 shots, while Dragan Gajic led Slovenia with 9 goals from 12 shots.
