EHFCL: Zvezda – Oltchim 23:26

Romanian champions Oltchim Ramnicu Valcea conquered an important away victory against Russian team Zvezda Zvenigorod 26-23 (15-13) in Champions League Group 2 and keeps theoretical chances for the semis, if they will win also the next two games.Oltchim struggled for 50 minutes against a spirited Zvezda side but turned on the heat in the final 10 minutes as the individual quality of the star-studded Romanian outfit made all the difference in an enthralling clash of styles in Russia, according to ehfcl.com.Line players Ioana Stanca and Oana Manea kept the visitors afloat as much as they could but when the going got tough, it was Paula Ungureanu who pulled off several key saves before Bulatovic finally got going.Ungureanu saved 47 per cent of the shots that came her way and Oltchim can now look forward to their crucial visit to Ferencvaros next weekend, eager to reverse the setback they suffered on home court against the Hungarians when they met in Romania in their opening Main Round game.
