PSG scores first Champions League points against Wisla Plock

Paris Saint-Germain handball opened their counter to victories in the Champions League, winning 37-33 Wednesday in their den of Coubertin against the Poles of Orlen Wisla Plock, during the second day of the group stage. During the first day, the Parisians lost 36-34 to Veszprem, vice-champion of Hungary. But this time, they were not surprised by the Poles, surprise winners of the last Polish Cup against Kielce, and who had won their first match against Porto (27-23).

Initially led, Nikola Karabatic and his teammates were able to resume the match on their own in the first set, thanks in particular to a flamboyant Kamil Syprzak (7 goals out of 7 attempts) to lead 18-16 at the break. They were then able to widen the gap on the return from the paying locker room, up to 7 goals in advance, to finally win their first victory of the European campaign, without however being completely successful.

This success allows them to currently occupy 3rd place in Group A, two points behind leader Veszprem. Eliminated in the quarter-finals last season, PSG will have to continue on this show and be even more incisive during the third day trip to Magdeburg (Germany) on September 28, to hope to qualify for the finals.
