The match could be labelled as a battle of the coaches, because the Rostov manager, Spain's Ambros Martín was last with Győr, leading them to their fourth Champions’ League victory.
This year, Győr was led by Hungarian Gábor Danyi, previously Martín’s second in command.
After finishing the first half with a reassuring 15-11 lead, Győr saw its advantage gradually melt and their Norwegian goalkeeper, Kari Aalvik Grimsbø had to avert a last-second shot to keep the team’s ultimately winning one-goal lead.
Rarely one to miss such successes of Hungarian sports, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán wrote on his Facebook page “Congratulations to the Queens of Handball! The girls of Győr have done it again!”
