IK Sävehof (SWE) vs Odense Håndbold (DEN) 31:37 (16:19)

  • Odense won both away matches this season, at Kastamonu and now at Sävehof
  • the Swedish team were in front for much of the first half, but a 7:1 run between minutes 19 and 27 helped Odense to a three-goal lead at the break
  • Mia Rej scored eight goals for Odense, while her teammate Dione Housheer, who celebrated her 22th birthday on the match day, netted seven times

Odense set scoring record

37 goals is the most scored by Odense in a continental top-flight match, in their third season.

Before that, the Danish side scored the most goals (36) against Vipers Kristiansand in last season's play-off.

We are not good enough in our defence and in our running process but from there we were getting stronger during the match and I think it is fair enough that we got the two points.
