Metz aim to defend advantage against Bucharest

After winning by five in Bucharest last week, Metz Handball have an advantage to preserve in order to qualify for their first ever DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4. Even though Cristina Neagu and Dragana Cvijic will not be on the court for this return leg, the Romanian side have enough experience to make up for this initial loss.
