SEHA - Gazprom League in numbers, season 2017/18

Nexe - Tatran Presov

As we are inching closer to the end of the year, we wanted to have a look at some of the statistical data regarding the 2017/18 season. We still have 6 rounds until the Final 4, but it feels like it's just around the corner. The video analysis shows us who is the best scorer so far, which team scored the most goals, and also reminds us of some of the best individual performances of the season. Each team had their moments this season and Vardar are looking firmly in control of the first place. It is going to be a very intense battle for the remaining Final 4 spots, so we are looking forward to the next part of the season!

Additionally we dug out some of the most interesting facts and figures about this part of the season!
