In Poland, Austria’s SolexConsult TTC Wiener Neustadt secured their fourth win; for the second time, they overcame KS DEKORGLASS DZIAŁDOWO. The match went the full distance, but it did not prevent Austria from claiming the top spot in the group unbeaten. They have secured their place in the Final Four after progressing from Stage One of the Champions League.

Ivor BAN was the backbone of the team’s success with two wins over ZHOU Yu and Patryk LEWANDOWSKI, while Jin UEDA secured the third point.

The Austrians are now in the Final Four, and French GV HENNEBONT TT and KS DEKORGLASS DZIAŁDOWO have not played against each other yet. Their first duel is scheduled for December 8th.

In France, A.S PONTOISE-CERGY TT repeated their success against Tesla Batteries Havirov and prevailed in straight matches. The Czech club has already suffered two losses against 1. FC Saarbrücken TT e.V, but the French team is yet to meet the reigning champions.

Tonight, Marcos FREITAS set the pace with a win over Adam STALZER; Mehdi BOULOUSSA followed suit with a victory over Tomas POLANSKY. Jan VALENTA had a chance to extend the match, but in the decisive game, Flavio MOURIER showed no mercy.
