Another set of thrilling matches gave handball fans an interesting evening on Tuesday with spectacular goals and saves, as four home teams and two lucky away sides claimed convincing wins. Dinamo stayed perfect beating Chambéry Savoie Mont-Blanc Handball in France just as TSV Hannover-Burgdorf and Nexe defended their home courts.

More balanced games in the battle for the valuable points were played in Novi Sad and La Rioja. A four-goal lead around the 40th minute was not enough for Bjerringbro-Silkeborg to claim their second win, as Vojvodina found new strength and made a turnaround in the last five minutes. Boosted by goalkeeper Fran Lucin, they claimed the narrow win. Alkaloid had a similar story in Spain as Kiril Lazarov's team bounced back from a three-goal deficit and secured a draw 10 seconds before the final buzzer.

Our team was unrecognizable. It was so important to show a different face especially for our supporters. Our success on the floor is what they give us during the game. We played well with fighting spirit on both sides. However, we missed too many opportunities.

First of all, I want to say thanks to the fans. First to them. With fans, here, in our hall, we can play with everyone in Europe. Afterwards, I want to say that faith led us. Faith led my players, thanks to it. Of course, there were some mistakes in the game, but now that is not a problem like how we managed to win. Maybe, the biggest victory of our club in the last 10 years.

Head coach, RK Vojvodina

We surprised our opponent with our 5:1 defence. Our victory is based on our willingness and intensity. We achieved it as a collective. Our defensive strength has a lot to do with the return of Lukas Heer. The size behind the player brought forward has a lot to do with it. When we adjust the formation into a 6:0, the use of Tomas Moreira is a hidden factor that allows us to make fewer specialist changes.
