After already two rounds of Men’s EHF VELUX Champions League were played, now it’s time for the female competition to begin as well. In the opening game one of the most serious candidates for the title, Gyori ETO hosts Podravka Koprivnica. On Saturday also, Larvik meets Savehof, while last season’s Champions League winners Buducnost welcome Zvezda Zvenigorod.
HC Dinamo – Ferencvaros, Thuringer – Viborg, Oltchim – Hypo, Ljubljana – Cluj and Randers – Buxtehuder are the rest of the games to be played on Sunday and Monday.
The defending champion is Buducnost, but coach Dragan Adzic will have very tough job following the departure of Katarina Bulatovic, Barjaktarovic and Djokic, and the retirement of Popovic and Savic.
