Nantes continues. This Wednesday evening, as part of the seventh day of the group stage of the Men’s Handball Champions League, the H, now on a series of five straight victories in all competitions, went to win in Denmark, and more precisely in Aalborg (32-35). A Danish club which currently occupies the first place in the classification of its national championship. A meeting during which the visitors, current leaders of the classification of the championship of France, then showed a very good control. It is certainly due to the fact that they quickly and finally took control in this meeting, and more precisely from 2-2. Under the leadership of Valero Rivera and his eight goals. Which makes him, quite simply, the top scorer of his team but also of this meeting.

Fifth win in seven Champions League games

Opposite, the top scorer of the evening on the local side, namely Sebastian Barthold, despite his seven goals, was ultimately unable to do anything. This season, the Nantes now have five victories in seven games already played in the most prestigious of club competitions. What obviously keep all their chances of being able to get out of their group, the B, and continue their journey in this event, even qualifying directly for the quarter-finals. Currently, Nantes temporarily occupy second place in their group, with a total of ten units on the clock., as much as the Poles of Kielce. Two points behind the Barcelona leader. For its part, after this second consecutive defeat in all competitions, Aalborg, with seven points, is currently in fourth position. Only the first two will go directly to the quarter-finals, while there are still seven days to go. As for the clubs ranked from third to sixth place, they will have to go through play-offs.
