The first leg matches will be played 1/2 February 2014, the second leg will follow next week. The defending winners of this competition DHK Banik Most play in the Women's EHF Cup this season.

In other pairings the second French team Issy Paris Handball will face Turkey's Istanbul Maltepe, while last season's semi-finalists H 65 Höör from Sweden will meet DHC Sokol Poruba from the Czech Republic.
