Rostov with a job to finish at home

Just like a year ago, a voyage to Hungary was quite successful for Rostov. After a solid performance and a 29:26 victory against FTC in Erd, the Russian champions made a big step towards reaching DELO WOMEN'S EHF FINAL4 for the second successive season.

While FTC still harbour hopes of turning things around, it will be very difficult for them in Rostov, where the home side rarely lose.
