EHF / Danijela Vekić

TBV Lemgo Lippe secured a 30:27 home victory against Chekhovskie medvedi in group B of the EHF European League Men, but it was not an easy task as the Russian side once again proved that they are no pushovers this season.

After Lemgo enjoyed a 30:28 win in Russia two weeks ago, they had to fight just as hard in Germany to earn their fourth victory in group B. Thanks to the unstoppable Lukas Zerbe and his 10 goals, Lemgo were able to celebrate with their fans.

Flying Lemgo

Tonight's win wouldn’t be possible without an outstanding performance from two wing players, the 25-year old right-wing Lukas Zerbe had a night to remember. He was a mystery to Chekov defence and netted 10 times.

After five matches this season he scored 37 goals. On the other side, his Icelandic teammate scored seven times from left-wing. Bjarki Mar Elisson proved that his experience is crucial for Lemgo.

TBV Medvedi 16 X2
We knew that this match would be difficult, with Medvedi we had a physically strong opponent. We were not so fresh after the straining last week. When we switched our defense from 6:0 to 5:1 Medvedi had more problems. Overall, it was a good performance from my team.
