Rhein Neckar Lowen and TSV Hannover Burgdorf will fight for the REWE DHB Cup trophy on Sunday 15.15hrs at O2 Arena in Hamburg.
Both teams had easier jobs than expected in their semi-final battles. TSV Hannover Burgdorg played spectacular defense in the first half against HSG Wetzlar 24:19 (15:4) which was more than enough for routine finish.
“Lions” showed great passion on the way to “double crown” in German handball. SC Magdeburg couldn’t cope with the rhythm of Nikolaj Jacobsen’s team.
