Robert SVENSSON leveled the match. Brice OLLIVIER overcame Kasper STERNBERG and CHEN Tianyuan proved too strong for Robert SVENSSON.

Liebherr Ochsenhausen beat Cajasur Priego SM in Biberach. Unlike the match in Priego de Cordoba which finished in straight games, German club needed four matches to conclude the meters at home. Liam PITCHFORD was the back bone of club’s success with two wins over WEI DONG Shi and Carlos MACHADO. MACHADO stretched player from England to full distance. Previously full distance thriller against RYU Seung Min, concluded in MACHADO’s favor. Kirill SKACHKOV overcame Alesandro CALVO.

In Grodzisk Mazowiecki, Dartom Bogoria Grodzisk Mazowiecki needed full five matches to beat Saarbrucken and once again we saw the thrilling encounter in Germany Bastian STEGER and Bojan TOKIC beat Daniel GORAK and Robert FLORAS, but OH Sang Eun was at the top of the game.
