Metz Handball claimed their eighth win in a row in the EHF Champions League Women 2022/23 with a narrow 36:34 victory against CS Rapid Bucuresti. The win confirms the French side's place in the quarter-finals and position as group B winners.

While the Romanian side did not let go easily and kept the pressure high in the match, they only led for a short period of time around the 20th minute. Significantly, Metz's goalkeepers helped the French team stay on course to take the important victory.

It was a really tough game because we had some problems with our defence. I think Metz are the more technical team and the defeat came down to small details, because we held on for the whole game. We have difficulties with all the injuries, so we have to work even harder.

It was a very difficult and involved match. Metz are very aggressive and we lacked realism in defence, especially at the end of the first half. We managed to come back after half-time, but we made the same mistakes again. We still played a good match and I'm proud of my team. We never gave up and that's the most important thing.
