On the occasion of the 7th day of the Champions League, PSG won against the Danes of Gudme. A result that allows him to temporarily take the lead in Pool A.
Paris SG, thanks in particular to an imperial Jannick Green in goal, beat Gudme (41-36) on Wednesday at home during the 7th day of the Champions League handball, relegating the Danish club to a good distance in the standings.
PSG takes the lead in Pool A (12 pts) from the Hungarians of Veszprem (11 pts) while waiting for their match at home against the modest Zagreb club on Thursday.
Above all, halfway through, he has a five-point lead over Gudme (4th, 7 pts, like Magdeburg) in the fight for the first two places, synonymous with direct qualification for the quarter-finals without going through the play-off box (places 3 to 6).
If he doubled the bet against the Danish team on the next day, PSG would definitively remove him from the race.
But the Danish champion will give the Parisians a lot of trouble, like on Wednesday when the hosts took more than a period and a half to break away, while remaining under threat until the last three minutes.
Goalkeeper Jannick Green on fire
PSG, without one of its main offensive weapons since the start of the season, left-back Elohim Prandi, injured on Friday in the league, has long come up against the Danish defense, like his Latvian giant Dainis Kristopans (7 goals from 11 attempts, the first three missed).
And can thank his Danish goalkeeper Jannick Green (17 saves at 33% success rate), who sickened Gudme’s attackers throughout the meeting.
At the very start of the match to prevent Paris from falling four goals behind (9th, 1-4), in the middle of the first period to participate in the recovery of his team (11-9 in the 20th minute after a 5-0) , then just after halftime (16-16) with four saves on the first five Danish shots.
Green, who arrived this summer, continued his festival during the second period, marked in particular by a splendid double parade at close range (28-25, 46th).
In the process, the Polish pivot Kamil Syprak gave PSG a four-goal lead, which ended up beating the Danish champion.
