SC Magdeburg won the top game against Füchse Berlin on Sunday with 28:27 (14:14), taking a big step towards winning the first title in 21 years. Thanks to the happy ending in a handball thriller in front of 6066 spectators, the club world champion continues to lead the table with 50: 4 points. “I can only make a huge compliment to my team,” said SCM trainer Bennet Wiegert. “I am glad that the boys could reward themselves.”

For the Berliners (42:12), however, the narrow defeat meant a setback in the fight for participation in the Champions League. The capital club fell behind the same SG Flensburg-Handewitt, who won the Nordduel against HSV Hamburg on Saturday with 33:23. “We are very depressed,” said Füchse sports director Stefan Kretzschmar at the “Sky” microphone.
four-goal lead Berlin is not enough
From the beginning, both teams fought a hot fight. Ten minutes before the end, the guests seemed at 25:21 on the winning road. But then Magdeburg made the late turn thanks to a 5-0 run. “We did not become hectic, but cool and always remained with our plan,” said Wiegert.
Gisli Kristjansson scored in the final minute with his fifth goal to the frenetically cheered victory, keeper Krejberg parried decisively. At Berlin, goalkeeper Dejan Milosavljev towered with 16 parades and right wing Hans Lindberg with 13 goals.
Kiel does his homework
The second in the table Kiel has hardly any more master chances, but the next step to qualify for the Champions League. The zebras won their home game against the MT Melsungen on Sunday with 27:25 (12:10) and are now four points ahead of SG Flensburg-Handewitt and the Foxen Berlin, who each played one game less. Niclas Ekberg scored seven goals for Kiel. The best thrower of the guests was Julius Kühn with eight goals.
In front of the 9881 spectators in the Kiel Arena, the hosts seemed to have the game under control early even without the battered Sander Sagosen. From 7: 6 the THW moved to 12: 6 (27th). Melsungen did not score out of the game for almost 14 minutes. But then the North Hesse scored five goals in a row on 11:12 (31st). In the 37th minute, Melsungens Kai Häfner marked the equalization at 15:15, five minutes later Kühn scored the first MT lead at 17:16.
The Kielers found it difficult to get back on track. In the meantime, Dario Quenstedt moved to the THW goal for the initially hapless Niklas Landin. Steffen Weinhold, Ekberg and Harald Reinkind brought the record champions back in the lead with 23:21 (51st), but only Hendrik Pekeler’s turner to 26:23 (56.) was the decisive intermediate step to victory.
