ROUND PREVIEW: A double-header in Norway and three second legs of ongoing quarter-final tie will decide the semi-finalists of the Men's Challenge Cup.
Norwegian-Israeli encounter in Stord
While three of the four encounters in the quarter-finals of the Men's Challenge Cup will be decided in the second leg this weekend, Stord Sportsenter in the Norwegian town Stord will be the venue of a double-header between the local heroes from Stord Handball and Ramat Hashron HC from Israel.
The first match it throwing off already on Friday night at 20.30, with the second leg on Saturday afternoon.
Handball club Odorhei receive ZTR Zaporozhye with an eight-goal lead from their 26:18 win on their visit to Ukraine last weekend, so anything else than a Romanian semi-final berth would be a substantial surprise ahead of the return game Sunday.
The second leg of that tie is commencing on Saturday afternoon at 16.00 local time.
