Match report

Royal Leopold confirmed their place in the KO16 with a 3-0
win over Dinamo Elektrostal, winning Round 1 Pool C though they had it far from
their own way.
In the end, goals from Dimitri Cuvelier, Agustin Mazzilli
and Gabriel Dabanch proved the difference from a game they only needed a draw
to advance. Elektrostal made a series of big chances in the closing 20 minutes
but Leo’s corner defence held firm to see out the result.
Cuvelier broke the deadlock in the 11th minute
with an excellent driving run from midfield that opened the door for a powerful
shot from the top of the circle.
Roman Rogov made some big saves to keep it that way until
half-time and Mazzilli extended the advantage early in the second half with
another powerful shot, beating Rogov’s left hand.
Needing victory, Elektrostal piled forward and created a
number of good chances with Dimitry Azarov seeing a series of drag-flicks saved
off the line by John Verdussen and Nicolas Poncelet while Julien Plennevaux was serving a ten-minute
Dinamo had a goal disallowed on video review soon after but
their hopes were dashed when Gabriel Dabanch sniffed a chance and flicked over
the goalkeeper to make it 3-0.
