Borussia Düsseldorf is setting a commanding pace in Champions League Men Group D with three consecutive victories. Tonight, they once again secured a triumph, this time against SPG Felbermayr Wels. The German club had previously emerged victorious against Portugal's Sporting Clube de Portugal in Group D.

Simultaneously, in Group B, TTC Neu-Ulm fulfilled their duty by defeating HB Ostrov z.s. for the second time. The Czech club also faced defeat at the hands of Poland's KS DARTOM BOGORIA Grodzisk Mazowiecki.

Following their 3-0 victory in the quarterfinals against Bad Königshofen, Borussia Düsseldorf, on the back of impressive performances, has moved a step closer to securing a spot in the semi-final of the Final 4.

“I am very happy that I won my first Champions League match. It was not the best performance ever, but I am satisfied with the win,” said HAUG. "It was a very solid performance from the whole team. Kay at the beginning gave us a good start. He lost the opening game but made a good return to the match. Anton was on his usual top performance.”

TTC Neu-Ulm continued their excellent form against HB Ostrov z.s., displaying no vulnerabilities in their performance tonight.

The group winners will progress to the semi-finals.
