National duels mark the way to EHF Cup Finals

There will be a sense of déjà-vu hovering in the air at the quarter-finals of this season's EHF Cup.

When the quarter-finals were drawn in Vienna on Tuesday, it was the fate of the draw that decided that the two German teams left in the competition - Frisch Auf Göppingen and SC Magdeburg - and the two French teams left - Chambery Savoie Handball and Saint-Raphael Var Handball - would meet each other.

The third quarter-final will be played between Spanish side Fraikin BM Granollers and Bjerringbro-Silkeborg.

EHF Cup Finals hosts HBC Nantes qualified directly for the final tournament courtesy of their Group B win.

Granollers, Saint-Raphael and Göppingen have the home right in the first leg which are scheduled to take place on 23/24 April. The return matches are scheduled to take place on 30 April / 1 May 2016.

The three winning teams qualify for the 2016 EHF Cup Finals in Nantes on 14 and 15 May.
