Hand – C1 (H) – Barcelona – Ludovic Fabregas (Barça): “It’s remarkable what the team has done”

“Barcelona had never beaten Kiel since the Final Four was held in Cologne. So satisfied after this success in the semi-finals (34-30)?
There, it’s done ! It was a difficult match, all the more so with the return of the public. As we saw, the room pushed in their favor but perhaps this pressure was reversed in the last moments, it allowed us to get away with the score. We are very happy to have won this decisive match, we had to if we wanted to defend our crown as long as possible.

It was a close match, tense especially in the first period (19-19)…
The first period was very hard physically, in terms of intensity, impacts. There was a lot of harshness. We kept our level of performance high enough to compete with Kiel. Perhaps the absences of Sagosen and Pekeler (injured) were felt in Kiel. They got a little exhausted. With our rotations, we were effective. It’s remarkable what the team has done.

Make way for Kielce, this Sunday in the final, against whom you have lost twice in the group stage this season…
At that point in the season they were in great form, they topped the Champions League this year, finished top of the group. In the quarter-finals (victory over Montpellier), they showed their superiority, made their experience speak. I didn’t watch the entire semi-final (victory over Veszprem, 37-35), but being able to turn things around when you’re down three goals and they were a little bit physical. In the second period, they were able to react, go up to +5, it shows the quality of this team. »
