The remaining teams will be determined in four quarter-final matches this weekend.

  • Lokomotiva progressed after defeating DHC Slavia Praha twice last week
  • Club Balonmano Atletico Guardes have a good chance to reach the next round following their 24:16 win at HC Galychanka Lviv as they meet again on Sunday in Pontevedra
  • Rincon Fertilidad Malaga and A.C.PAOK will play a double-header on Friday and Sunday in Thessaloniki
  • Yalikavaksports Club vs Rocasa Gran Canaria will be decided in a single game, on Sunday in Bodrum; the winner of this match will meet Lokomotiva in the semi-final

Three Spanish teams may go through

While Croatia are already certain to have a team in the semi-final, all other spots in the next round may by occupied by Spanish sides.

Atletico Guardes already have one foot there following an eight-goal away win in Lviv. Although both Malaga and Rocasa will play away from home this weekend, in Greece and Turkey respectively, they also have a fair chance to go through.
