Maccabi Rishon Lezion (ISR) - ZRK Bjelovar (CRO) 25-23
Tight game in Rishon Lezion between two equal teams. The Croatians are bigger, stronger and still more elegant, but Rishon with the home advantage had been fighting, scratching and smacking all the way to the win.
Bjelovar made a lot of rotation, unlike Rishon who played with the same players almost all game. This means that Bjelovar will be fresher today in the second leg after only 24 hours rest, but their best player yesterday, the energetic right back/wing Josipa Mamic, got injured and I guess she won't play today. On the other side, one of the best players of Rishon didn't play yesterday, I don't know if it's due to injury or maybe the coach keeps her as surprise for today.
Bjelovar streams the game yesterday in their facebook page, hopefully they will do it today too at 16:00 cet: https://www.facebook.com/zrkbj
