PSG finally holds it! This Thursday evening, as part of the 3rd day of the group stage of the Champions League in men’s handball, the club of the Capital has had Elverum (35-29), at home. A first victory this season for the Parisians, after two first losses, against Flensburg (28-29) then at Meshkov Brest (32-31), the worst start in its history in the most prestigious of European club competitions. This time, no defeat of a small goal, but indeed a convincing success, against the Norwegians, thanks to his executives but also to his rookie Elohim Prandi, who did not falter. A serious victory, while PSG led throughout the meeting, unlike previous matches, with even a 3-0 from the 4th minute of play, before being joined (4-4).

An evening marked by the return of Abalo to Coubertin
Despite the absence of Luka Karabatic, the Parisians were particularly serious in defense, as obviously in terms of attack. Nedim Remili was particularly illustrated, like the Polish Kamil Syprzak, but also the winger Adama Keita, performing in the first act (4/4). At the end of the match, Raul Gonzalez even offered himself the luxury of spinning, thus including, in the cage, Leo Villain, aged only 17. This evening was also marked by the big comeback, from Coubertin’s side, of winger Luc Abalo, who wore the Parisian jersey for eight years, before joining Elverum. During the presentation of the teams, the public did not fail to applaud him, but that did not prevent the Frenchman from missing his meeting. This first success does not however bring Paris closer to the top teams of Group A, since the French club only occupies sixth place. Next week, a perilous trip awaits him near Kielce. History of chaining.
