After Vojvodina and Metaloplastika finished their EHF Cup journey in the 2nd qualification round, the only SEHA club that will participate in this competition will be Nexe.

Croatian vice-champions will just now start the competition as they directly qualified for the 3rd qualification round where they will meet with SL Benfica. On the other hand, the Portugese team started the competition in the 2nd qualification round where they beat Dubrava in both matches.

The first leg of the 3rd qualification round is scheduled for 16th/17th of November when Hrvoje Horvat's squad will be the host.  On 23rd/24th of November, Nexe will play the second leg of that round. 

In the previous season, Nexe went through to the group phase of the EHF Cup, while Benfica finished the competition in the 3rd qualification round.
