Thanks to three consecutive goals in the last three minutes of the match, Brest signs at the expense of CSM Bucharest its first away victory this season in the Champions League (29-30).
Brest is finally sovereign far from its bases … but the BBH had to work to win on the floor of CSM Bucharest. While Alexandra Dindiligan (2 goals on 2 shots) put the Romanian club on the right track from the start, the Brestoises resisted before cracking. In the space of just under five minutes, the Bucharest players took advantage of the Bretons’ offensive mistakes to sign a 4-0 thanks in particular to Cristina Neagu (10 goals on 17 shots) and take as many goals in advance. after only eleven minutes. This is what was needed to allow Pablo Morel’s players to wake up and enter the game. Indeed, the response was immediate with Kalidiatou Niakaté (10 goals on 13 shots), Coralie Lassource (4 goals on 6 shots), Monika Kobylinska (5 goals on 9 shots) and Alicia Toublanc (2 goals on 4 shots) handed over Brest at height in just three minutes. CSM Bucharest did not let that count in an end of the first act with the air of a crossover concluded with a two-goal advantage.
