Jerábková seals Ikast's last-gasp win against Krim
Six teams closed round 4 of the EHF Champions League Women, giving Europe's top-flight fans one last dose of drama ahead of the national team week break. CSM Bucuresti strolled down Partille, taking a no-nonsense win against Sävehof.
Györi Audi ETO KC had an equally relaxed day at home leaving no hope for Buducnost. In the battle of the only two unbeaten teams of group B, we saw amazing action, comebacks, decisive saves and a last-gasp goal. Ikast's dream start continues as they inflict the first defeat of the season to Krim in the final moments of the game.
It was a tough game. They are a couple of levels better than us, which they showed today. We’re disappointed that we didn’t solve the small details that we had agreed on beforehand, but tactically it’s also more difficult against a team that has such great players.
We were not ready in the first half and every mistake we made was punished with a goal. We knew it would be difficult. We had to fight for every ball. We have to be patient and we have to bring everyone to top level.
Krim is a team that is tactically very strong, so today we didn't meet a team who allowed us to play our way, but our mentality and the players who came in from the bench did a good job and that makes me really proud.
