The Bleues beat the Montenegrines 27-19 this Sunday, November 13, in Skopje, in Macedonia. The Olympic champions, still undefeated in this European championship, took the head of their group alone and only need one point in two games to secure a place in the semi-finals.

“It is a great result because we win and because we get a very positive Goal Average which can weigh heavily in case we are equal in points with other teams”, enjoyed the coach French Olivier Krumbholz.

His players brought down on earth Montenegrins in Levitation during their first round on their land in Podgorica where no one had been able to drop the little Republic of the Balkans. In addition to France and Montenegro, only Norway had refueled during the first round of this euro. 2>

Olivier Krumbholz’s team was able to count in particular on his goalkeeper Cleopatra Darleux, author of twelve stops. At the pivot, Pauletta Foppa has magnetized the balloons (6 goals on 7 shots) and asserts itself as the best French scorer in this tournament (15 goals).

A fourth presence in a row in the semi-finals of the European tournament seems promised to the Blue, which have six points in their group II in three matches. The band of Estelle Nze Minko can validate her qualification on Tuesday (8:30 p.m.) against Germany, or the next day (8:30 p.m.) against Spain. The first two teams of each main tour group qualify for the last square in Ljubljana where the semi-finals are held on Friday, then the final, Sunday.
