ROUND REVIEW: Women's EHF Cup will have a new winner after Lada were sent out last weekend.
15 teams chasing Lada's title
Last season, Handball Club Lada won the Women's EHF Cup. That will not be the case this year, as the Russian team was sent out in the only double-header last weekend in the Last 16. 2013 winners Team Tvis Holstebro won by five goals on aggregate in two away matches, which means that a new winner of the tournament will have to be found among the 15 remaining teams in the competition.
The fact that Lada are out of the tournament does not mean that Russian handball does not still have good chances in the tournament.
Astrakhanochka are travelling to Romania with an 11-goal lead after a 36:25 home win against ASC Corona 2010 Brasov, while Rostov-Don also stand with very good quarter-final hopes. The team under Danish coach Jan Leslie are leading 28:19 before going to Hungary for the Saturday meeting with Dunaujvarosi Kohasz Kezilabda Akademia.
