After their first defeat of the season in the Championship, Nantes fall to Barcelona in the Champions League

The final gap clearly does not reflect the physiognomy of the match. Catchy, the H of Nantes lost Thursday evening, in the Champions League, on the ground of Barcelona, ​​conceding a setback of five goals (29-34) not really deserved in view of the efforts made. Especially since Thibaud Briet (8 out of 8 shooting) and his family had joined the locker room at halftime with a small advantage (17-16, 20th).

They especially fell, on the last twenty minutes of the match, on a bone, former of the house: the porter Emil Nielsen, author of 8 saves (out of 26 attempts), resident of the Loire-Atlantique club between 2019 and 2022.

Led 22-20, the Blaugrana then delivered a one-sided end to the match, finished on a 14-7, in the wake of Ludovic Fabregas, author of 6 achievements (in 7 attempts).

The period is complicated for the people of Nantes, who after conceding their first setback of the season in the French league, in Limoges (31-35)continue with their second loss in the Champions League. In the Group B standings, they fall to third place behind Kielce, while Barcelona, ​​double title holder in C1, remains undefeated (6 wins). Nantes will seek to react on Sunday, at home, against Créteil.
