A cross-border derby gets us going after a two-week competition break, featuring a Scandinavian-laden Flensburg side playing host to Skjern and welcoming two former players back – Anders Eggert and Thomas Mogensen.

Round 7:
HC PPD Zagreb vs RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko

This is another clash between neighbouring sides from the wonderfully wide-open Group B. Both Celje and Zagreb will be eyeing desperately needed points in the race for the Last 16.

Barça Lassa vs HC Vardar
Saturday 17 November at 18:00 CET

The two sides currently sitting top of Group A come face-to-face in an eagerly-anticipated encounter, which will be a true test of both team’s title ambitions.
