Bitter CL swatter at home
Paris Saint-Germain rips down dispirited SCM

SC Magdeburg learned a lot from the Champions League. Coach Bennett Wiegert’s side lost significantly in their own hall to French top club Paris Saint-Germain. After two victories at the start, this is the first big setback for the SCM.
SC Magdeburg, German handball champions, suffered their first defeat of the season. Coach Bennet Wiegert’s team lost 22:29 (10:18) to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday. After five Bundesliga wins and two premier class wins, SCM had no chance against France’s star set, but still have every chance to progress. Magdeburg’s top scorer was national player Philipp Weber with seven goals. Four players have scored five times for the guests.
The fans created the dreaded atmosphere in the Getec Arena early on, but it didn’t inspire the team. The SCM had problems with the opposing offensive defense, Paris pulled away with four goals at the start of the match. It was 7:3 after just 13 minutes. Wiegert took his first time out after 15 minutes. “More courage in everything we do,” he demanded. When things didn’t improve, he snapped, “Less individual stocks!” His speeches were not fruitful, the tune was out early. 18 of the Parisians’ 23 attempts in the first 30 minutes ended up in the net.
PSG didn’t let go after the change and even increased their lead to ten goals. Goalkeeper Jannick Green, who had been under contract with Magdeburg for eight years and until last summer, was able to distinguish himself a few times at his former place of work. The SCM made a real effort against last year’s quarter-finalists, but ended up being a lower class.
The French had by no means arrived at their best. PSG recently suffered a domestic league loss to Fenix Toulouse for the first time since April 25, 2021. Superstar Nikola Karabatic also signed on the day of the match due to a corona infection. The top two from the two groups of eight advance directly to the quarter-finals. The teams ranked three to six must make the detour through the round of 16.
