60 minutes for an AKQUINET EHF Cup Finals ticket
After drawing 30:30 in the first leg in France, FC Porto Sofarma and Saint-Raphael Var Handball will decide the AKQUINET EHF Cup Finals ticket in one must-win match. Reaching the finals would be a first for the hosts of Saturday’s clash, but the third straight time for Saint-Raphael, who qualified for the competition’s final last season.
The equation is now pretty simple: the winner of the game will process to the finals, while a draw would mean that the teams have to be separated on the away goals criteria.
