The Slovenes played better in the first half of the game, with the half-time result of 13:14 in their favour. In the second half the young Slovenian team could not keep up with the pressure from Spain, and concluded the match with seven goals behind.

As the weakest qualifying team of group A, Slovenia will play with No. 1 of group B, that is, Sweden. This match will take place on Sunday, December 10, at 20:30.
