HSV Handball will play without Pascal Hens at “Wild Card” tournament of VELUX EHF Champions League. HSV’s captain and former German NT player is injured at Bundesliga’s game against SC Magdeburg last Tuesday and won’t be able to help his team-mates in the battle for the place at European elite competition. His shoulder needs special treatment, so all the pressure will be on Blazenko Lackovic, who share the left back position with Hens.
HSV Handball plays against Orlen Wisla Plock in the first semi-finals. In the second match will play Saint Raphael and Cimos Koper.
