Buducnost earlier suffered a 30:21 drubbing against Odense
It will be No. 5 against No. 4 of group B when Buducnost and Odense enter the court in Podgorica's Sports Centre Moraca for MOTW.
Apart from their defeat in Wednesday's rescheduled match at SCM Ramnicu Valcea, Buducnost have recovered in recent rounds from their rough start to the season, when they gathered just one point from their first four matches.
That series included a 30:21 drubbing at the hands of Odense, which had a blistering start to only their second EHF Champions League campaign and were leading group B for several rounds.
In the Danish side's first season in Europe's top flight, in 2018/19, they also shared a group with Buducnost. Back then, the two-time Champions League winners came away with two victories: 31:28 at home and 26:22 in Denmark.
While Buducnost likely have done enough to advance to the play-offs, Odense are still in with a chance to make it to the top two in group B - with direct access to the quarter-final as a bonus.
For that scenario to happen, however, a whole lot needs to go Odense's way, first of all in Saturday's MOTW against Buducnost.
