Defending champion maintains first place with a perfect record of 9 victories in a row. Hope-GBA at the other side keeps the fifth position with four games lost. Helios will play against Pully (#6) at home in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Hope-GBA will play against Basel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
