Füchse can start getting ready to play the EHF Cup Finals in the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin – the same venue, where they qualified for the Finals Sunday through a five-goal win against Porto.

Just like in their first match against Porto, Füchse had certain starting problems, and the 6,316 spectators saw the visitors being up 8:7 at half-time.

In the second half, the home team set things right, though, and take a five-goal win which was more than enough to secure them the group win.

The win for Füchse also means that Skjern Handbold are sure to proceed to the quarter-finals.

The following four teams are ready for the quarter-finals before the last match day the coming weekend:

HSV Hamburg from Group A
Team Tvis Holstebro from Group B
Skjern Handbold from Group C
