MATCH FRANCE - RUSSIA - HANDBALL 2019 - Live score and goals, result, resume ... Live the game live between France hand team and Russia for the first round of the championship of the world. The Blues are not exceptional at the moment
It is the end this Thursday night of a first round until then led by the Blues. The France team continues its 2019 Handball World Cup against Russia on Thursday night. Already qualified for the main round, the Blues can count on the return of Nikola Karabatic. The star of the Blues replaces Cédric Sorhaindo, injured in the draw against Germany (25-25) and forfeit the rest of the competition. The Parisian could enjoy this game to prowl before the rest of the competition. Kick off this France-Russia at 20:30 in Berlin, a live match to follow below.
The Blues give the kickoff of this second act that is to say that they have the opportunity to take the lead and it did not happen much in the first half.
Unlike his counterpart Nikola Karabatic, Melvyn Richardson made an excellent first game with four goals on the clock. Always well placed, it makes for the moment the good choices in this France - Russia. It must be confirmed in the second act.
21:13 - A small contribution from Karabatic
Zero goal for Nikola Karabatic who did not play much in this first act. Logic after such a long injury. Management seems to be the key word for Didier Dinart in this France - Russia.
If the Blues are clumsy, it is largely because of his clumsiness in shooting. Indeed, for the moment the French realize a small 12/24 after thirty minutes of play.
Mathieu Grébille who remained on a failure gives a little smile to the Blues who return to 12-12 at the end of this first act.
Dereven still marks him, then Kireev makes his eighth stop of the evening on a shot from Grébille and gives the advantage to Russia. Dead time for the Blues
After a new goal from Dereven, Luka Karabatic for the first time cheats Russia's goalkeeper. There is one minute remaining in this first period
The Blues take over in defense thanks to Vincent Gérard, against Nedim Remili manages to conclude perfectly.
Beautiful setting Valentin Porte on his wing who finds the way to the goal and gives once again the Blues to a length.
He is the man of the first half at the Blues with a fourth goal but a few seconds later Shkurinsky, the number 9 of Russia gives two goals in advance
The kickoff of this match between France and Russia will be given at 8.30 pm, this Thursday, January 17, 2019, at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, where all Group A Handball matches were held. The Blues will then go on to the main round in Cologne.
