QUARTER-FINAL PREVIEW: Two four-time Women's EHF Champions League winners, Katrine Lunde and Katarina Bulatovic, fight for a spot to Budapest with Vipers and Buducnost
Record participants face quarter-final debutants
The most experienced Women’s EHF Champions League club, Buducnost, who are participating in the Champions League for a record 23rd season, hope to book their fifth ticket for the DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 in Budapest. Their opponents, Norwegian champions Vipers Kristiansand, are to set to make their first ever appearance in the quarter-finals in just their second season in the top flight.
Both sides had the same record in the main round: four wins and two defeats. But Vipers enter the quarter-finals after finishing second below Györ in Group 1, while Buducnost finished third behind Metz and Rostov-Don in Group 2.
Buducnost are without team captain and centre back Milena Raicevic for both legs of the quarter-final tie due to a shoulder injury.
