Three Danish teams and Siofok continue fight for trophy

Three of the four remaining teams in the Women’s EHF Cup represent Denmark, which means the semi-finals feature a domestic derby. Herning-Ikast and Esbjerg will face each other in the penultimate stage of the European cup competition just three days after a mutual clash in the Danish league.

The second semi-final will see a meeting of two teams with long winning streaks in the current competition, but that streak will come to an end for either Siofok or Viborg on Saturday. The match will be streamed live on ehfTV.com.
