Eight more teams enter Round 3
Last weekend U Jolidon Cluj (ROU), Dinamo Volgograd (RUS), Cankaya Bel. Anka Spor (TUR), TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen (GER) and Skuru IK (SWE) all qualified for the round of the Last 16 of the Women's EHF Cup. This weekend the remaining 11 participants will be found in four double headers and seven second leg matches.
Last season, WHC Radnicki Kragujevac had their European debut when they reached the Llast 16 in the EHF Cup. In two home matches in the Sport Center Mladost “Jezero” they will have try for a similar success when facing Danish Team Esbjerg, who have their first appearance in this season's competition, just like the Serbian team.
In the three other double-headers this weekend, Köfem Sport Club are receiving Icelandic Fram in Hungary, Spanish Elche C. F. Mustang have a visit from Luxembourg in the form of HB Dudelange, and finally HC Zito Prilep are playing at home in FYR Macedonia against Frisch Auf Göppingen from Germany.
The European adventure of last season´s Challenge Cup finalists DHK Banik Most and ZRK Samobor may come to an end much sooner this season than last year, as both teams are in trouble before their return matches. Most, the Black Angels from the Czech Republich, who won the Challenge Cup last season, are down 21:28 before receiving last season's EHF Cup semi-finalists HC. Zalau from Romania on Saturday.
Most's opponents in the Challenge Cup final last season, Samobor are also seven goals behind, as Lada will take the trip from Russia to Croatia with a 33:26 win in their luggage.
In Amsterdam, Succes Schoonmaak/VOC Amsterdam, are also chasing a seven goal deficit after having lost 18:25 away to Hungarian Ipress Center-Vac, and so are Slovenian RK GEN-I Zagorje who lost 24:31 against IUVENTA Michalovce in Slovakia last weekend.
