Beşiktaş Mogaz HT started the home match at Kocaeli eyeing their third Group D win but faced a stubborn Danish side in the early going as the visitors, spurred on by 5 goals from Bramming, kept the score level at 9:9 midway through the first half. When the rest of the winless Holsterbro joined Bramming, who netted 7 goals in the first half; the visitors, all against the odds, pulled ahead 16:15, heading into the break. However, it was a completely different story in the second half. Led by the experienced duo of Döne and Özbahar, Beşiktaş Mogaz HT managed to contain the hot-shooting Bramming and tightened up on defence to take a 25:21 lead after 15 minutes. While the visitors failed to respond to Beşiktaş’ rally, the Black Eagles took advantage of Holsterbro’s technical faults and 2-minute penalties in the remainder of the game to run away with a comfortable 36:27 win. Captain Döne finished with a game-high 8 goals.
