Danish-Hungarian duel for AKQUINET EHF Cup Finals ticket
After booking the very last ticket for the quarter-finals on the last day of group phase matches, TTH Holstebro are ready to host Grundfos Tatabanya KC for the first leg of their Men’s EHF Cup Quarter-final tie.
At first sight, experience speaks in favour of the Danish hosts, who are playing their third EHF Cup Quarter-final in history and who even made it to the finals in 2013.
Holstebro also have a VELUX EHF Champions League Group Phase campaign behind them, in the 2016/17 season, while Tatabanya are in the EHF Cup Quarter-final for the second time in history, the first time being in the 2016/17 season.
“If we can get that fast play going, which we prefer, we may be able to cause some trouble for the rather heavy Tatabanya players,” says Holstebro coach Patrick Westerholm before the first competitive meeting ever between the two clubs.
All Men's EHF Cup Quarter-finals will be broadcast on ehfTV.com with English commentary.
