GROUP MATCHES REVIEW: Interesting numbers of the first group stage, which has concluded on Sunday - goals, points, spectators, top scorers.
 

Facts and Figures of Group Matches

The Group Matches of the Women’s EHF Champions League has concluded on Sunday evening –with the final decisions regarding the qualification for the Main Round and those, who will continue in the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Thüringer HC in Group A and Buducnost Podgorica in Group B were the last ones to book their tickets for the next stage in this competition, while after Metz, also Hypo Niederösterreich, FTC Budapest and Podravka Koprivnica missed the Main Round, but still have remained present on international stage.

Defending champions Györ (HUN), last season’s finalist Larvik (NOR) and newcomer Vardar (MKD) were the first to clinch their berth for the Main Round after only four matches, while Krim (SLO), Sävehof (SWE) and Midtjylland (DEN) followed after Round 5.

The composition for the Main Round is highly interesting, as for the first time since years no country is represented by more than one team. This means eight nations compete for those four spots in the semi-finals in six rounds of the Main Round, starting in February.

Four teams, which have made it to the Main Round in the current season, again are part of those eight teams now: The three 2012/13 semi-finalists Györ, Larvik and Krim and Buducnost.

Three teams are Main Round debutants in the Women’s EHF Champions League: Vardar Skopje (brand new team in the competition), Sävehof and Thüringer HC.

Here are more facts and figures of the Group Matches of the 2013/14 Women’s EHF Champions League:

Points, points, points

In 48 matches of the first group stage 30 times the home team was victorious, 16 times the away team was the winner, while only two matches ended in a draw.

Defending champions Györ were the only team to finish the Group Matches with a clean record of 12 points, followed by Champions League debutants Vardar, who only gave one point away from their hand, the draw against Larvik in their home opener. Both were the only unbeaten teams.

Thüringer HC were the team to make it to the Main Round with the lowest number of points (4), after failing on the way to the next stage in the previous season with even two points more on their account. THC finally had five points less than the best second ranked team from Larvik.

6 points: Györ, Midtjylland, Krim, Buducnost
5 points: Vardar, Sävehof
