The Barcelona handball players became European champions for the eleventh time. In the final of the Champions League in Cologne, after shooting 7-meter throws with 37:35, they defeated Kielce and defended last year’s title. After the regular part of the match, the result was 28:28, and after extra time 32:32.

The final match in front of 19,250 spectators was better started by the Catalans, who led 10: 7 in the 18th minute. Then the protégés of the famous Talent Dušebajev also caught their breath and equalized at 12:12. At half time, Barcelona had a goal advantage (14:13).

An even showdown continued in the second half. In the final, Barca smiled at the victory, but two seconds before the end of the regular part of the match with a shot from six meters, the Belarusian striker Arcjom Karalek forced an extension.

There was no final decision in the ten-minute extra time, and the Spaniards were more focused in the “lottery”. They scored all five penalties and missed out on the Polish team in the third set Alex Dušebajev.
