Metz continued its good momentum in the Champions League on Sunday by beating Ljubljana at home (40-31), the fifth victory in a row for the “Dragonnes” in the European competition. Messines (12 points) are now second in their group, taking advantage of Ikast's defeat (37-34) against Esbjerg (1st, 14 pts) at the same time.
And they didn't tremble at all in this meeting against the Slovenes, whom they had already beaten 28-22 a week ago in their home arena. The Mosellanes took off in the first period, going so far as to lead by 10 goals two minutes before the break, during which they ultimately led 20-12.
A sufficiently comfortable mattress for the teammates of Chloé Valentini and Kristina Jorgensen, authors of eight goals each, who therefore climb to second place in their group, synonymous with direct qualification in the quarter.
