Qualitative analysis of Men's EHF EURO 2018 released

The EHF has published the qualitative analysis of the most recent Men’s EHF EURO which was played from 12 to 28 January 2018 in Croatia.

Based on the championship's statistics and his own observations, Hungarian handball expert and member of the EHF Methods Commission Peter Kovacs has put together the 30-page strong analysis.

From the number of internationals playing abroad, to the attacking and defence patterns of the 16 participating teams, to goalkeeping performance and technical and tactical novelties, Kovacs offers an in-depth view of the trends that surfaced during the EHF EURO.

It serves as an indication how hotly contested this tournament was that nine out of 12 teams had the opportunity to reach the semi-finals before the final matches in the main round.

Kovacs' entire 2018 analysis - together with quantitative data provided by Swiss Timing - has now been made publicly available for download on the European Handball Federation's Activities website.
