Second half starts with reverse encounters

FC Porto Sofarma can clinch their Men’s EHF Cup Quarter-final berth this weekend, if they win at home against TTH Holstebro and the other match in Group C, between Liberbank Cuenca and HC Dobrogea Sud Constanta, ends in a draw.

Regardless of the results in the Cuenca versus Constanta clash, a win will bring Porto very close to the quarter-final.
