20:20 LAZAROV IN TOP SCORERS RANKING

Kiril Lazarov attempted to lead a Macedonian fightback against Austria tonight, but with no luck. The legendary right back and a record holder for most goals at one EHF EURO (61) leaves his fifth continental championships with a career tally of 182 goals, tied in seventh place with the current Czech coach Jan Filip.

20:00 SLOVENIA AND AUSTRIA PROGRESS

Austria and Slovenia are in the main round after they beat North Macedonia and Switzerland respectively. France will go home with two points after winning their match against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

19:00 HALF-TIME

Slovenia are having things all their own way in Gothenburg and lead Switzerland 16:10. In Vienna, the same margin separate Austria and North Macedonia (18:12). The closest match is the one which does not affect main round progression - France lead Bosnia and Herzegovina 14:13.

17:15 HERE’S HOW TO FOLLOW THE ACTION

For the last time in the preliminary round, there are six matches ahead tonight and here’s how you can follow all the action:

The first matches throw off in just 60 minutes at 18:15 CET.

16:50 PSG STARS IN FOCUS

Norway's Sander Sagosen and France's Nikola Karabatic are more used to playing alongside each other at Paris Saint-German - but on Sunday lined up against each other in the EHF EURO 2020 preliminary round.

14:15 NEW PODCAST ALERT!

10:30 MATHS NOT ON MACEDONIANS' AGENDA

There are various ways in which North Macedonia can qualify for the main round, but the simplest way is to beat co-hosts Austria in Vienna tonight by two goals. Right wing Martin Popovski isn't worrying about the maths - he just wants to end the preliminary round with a solid win.

10:00 BOOM!

The Netherlands might be out of the competition but they have made a substantial impact, topping several of the statistics rankings. And Jeffrey Boomhouwer scored what is probably the goal of the tournament last night! Watch and marvel.

09:30 DAY 6 BEGINS ...

It's the penultimate day of the preliminary round and four more teams can book their main round places today. To find out what they need to do, here's our road map to the main round.
