Match report

Jean-Baptiste Pauchet’s single goal proved the sole divider
between Saint Germain and Pomorzanin Torun as the French side progressed their
chances of advancing to the KO16.
It was tight throughout. The first half ended scoreless with
Saint Germain making most of the running but were unable to unlock a tightly
guarded Pomorzanin Torun circle. Their best chances came from corners but they
found Michal Sliwinski in top form.
His diving save to deny Gregoire Samson was the highlight of
the first action but Torun were stung for a 10-minute yellow card for Michal
Kunklewski close to the big break.
It cost them dear as Saint Germain took the lead soon after
the game’s return with Jean-Baptiste showing excellent reactions to pick up a
crash ball that ricocheted off the post. He controlled and slotted home from
close range.
Torun replied in kind and came within a whisker of
equalising when Michal Makowski’s drag-flicks smacked the frame of the goal.
The rebound flashed across the face of goal, denying them from their best
chance of the game with seven minutes to go.
Saint Germain held on to their narrow win and now meet Amsterdam
with a win giving them a place in the KO16.
