With a win against Romania at the end of today’s main round (3.30 p.m. / Sportdeutschland.tv) in Skopje and subsequent support from the two semi-finalists France and Montenegro, the DHB selection can still climb to third place in Group II. “It’s an opportunity and we want to seize it. We want to win the game and then we’ll see what comes of it,” said national coach Markus Gaugisch.

The starting position: Olympic champions France (8-0 points) and Montenegro (6-2) have already secured their ticket for the semi-finals in Ljubljana. They are followed in Group II by Spain and the Netherlands (both 3:5) and Germany and Romania (both 2:6).

The DHB selection reaches the game for fifth place if …

… she wins the game against Romania, the Netherlands doesn’t win against Montenegro and Spain loses against France. In the event of a possible tie with the Dutch women, the direct comparison won would speak in favor of Germany.

… she draws against Romania and the Netherlands and Spain lose their games. In this case, all four teams would have the same number of points – both in the overall table and in the four-way comparison, which is why the goal difference from the direct duels of the quartet would then be decisive. Germany would have been ahead thanks to the high eight-goal win against the Netherlands.
