Women´s EHF Cup Quarter-finals pairings

The draw of the Women’s EHF Cup Quarter-finals and Semi-finals took place at the EHF headquarters in Vienna on Tuesday, 12 February 2013. The draw was carried out by the EHF Secretary General Michael Wiederer and the EHF Marketing Women’s Club Board chairman Kay Sven Hähner.

The first leg of quarter-finals will be played 9/10 March, second leg one week later. The semi-finals are scheduled for 6/7 April (first leg) and 13/14 April (second leg).

The finalists of the 2010/11 WOMEN´S EHF Champions League from Grupo Asfi Itxako Navarra (ESP) will meet the last season´s finalists HC Zalau (ROU). The winners will play in the semi-finals either against Astrakhanochka or Metz, as the Russian club is the next hurdle of the French side, which is the part of the EHF European Cup competitions for the consecutive 20th season.

2002 and 2011 EHF Cup winners and leaders of the Danish league FC Midtjylland will have to jump over another Russian club HC Kuban Krasnodar, if they want to reach all-Scandinavian semi-finals. Team Tvis Holstebro, who eliminated the defending EHF Cup trophy holders Lada Togliatti in the Last 16, will clash with Tertnes Bergen, who ended up the European campaign of the reigning Challenge Cup winners HAC Havre in the previous round.

Information on the EHF Cup Finals draw

With certain constellation the home right draw of the EHF Cup finals planned for 16 April might not take place at all, since three teams were involved in the EC finals in the last three seasons and all of them had the home right in the second leg.
If Zalau make it to the finals, they will play the first match at home no matter who their opponent will be, since they had the home right in the second leg of the EHF Cup last season.
Itxako and FC Midtjylland reached the finals two seasons ago (EHF Chamions League, respectively EHF Cup), therefore they both would have to play the first leg on the home court unless they meet each other. If they both qualify for the finals, the home-right draw will take place.
