Women’s EHF Cup: Unpredictable

The women’s EHF Cup has arrived to a stage where only top teams will play each other. Excitement guaranteed.

Volgograd vs Lublin

Ferling and Dunaferr are going for a big success this yearThe young and talented Russian side played three seasons in the Champions League and now they are competing in the EHF Cup. They proved that they are still a great team by beating Leverkusen and Iuventa Mihalovce. They seem to be the favourites against the Polish side that have play every year in one of the EHF competitions since 1994.

Byasen vs Dunaferr

The Norwegians are also well known from the CL, but they failed to qualify against Valcea this year. The experienced team will meet a former CL winning Hungarian side. Dunaferr have many national players and they show an improving form in their domestic championship as well.

Metz vs Itxako

The French side appear in one of the competitions every year. This season they failed to qualify to the CL because of Győr, but they have many French national players, such as the experienced Isabelle Wendling. Itxako, on the other side, have shown that they are in good form this year against a Russian and a Hungarian opponent. They build on foreign players, e.g. Brazilians in their squad.

Ikast vs Elda Prestigio

This may be the derby of the round. The Danes are certainly among the top teams of Europe with Norwegian stars such as Hammerseng, Nyberg and Blanco. The Spanish have been doing fine in the competition by eliminating a Danish and a Spanish (!) side so far.
