EHF EL derby in Nasice, Veszprem looking to get back on the winning tracks


New week full of challenges in Maschineseeker EHF Champions League and European League means it is once again time for our weekly preview! Without further ado – let’s get started!

Maschineseeker EHF Champions League

After a loss in Zagreb last week, Telekom Veszprem will in this round welcome Polish Orlen Wisla Plock in a match in which Momir Ilic and his guys will surely be looking to get back on the winning track with the help of their incredible fans. The match is scheduled for Thursday (18.45 CET) in Veszprem Arena.

In Slavko Goluza’s first home match back as a PPD Zagreb coach, ‘Lions’ managed to stun highly-favoured Telekom Veszprem and will now be looking to do more of the same against Dinamo Bucuresti away from home. Croatian champions are clearly on the rise and they will surely have an additional motive as they lost to Dinamo at home due to a last-second seven-meter shot. The match is scheduled for Thursday (18.45 CET).
