MIDWEEK PREVIEW: After narrow losses in their opening matches of 2019, both Flensburg and Celje have a chance to bounce back immediately

Flensburg on the verge of Last 16 progression

SG Flensburg-Handewitt will take a big step towards securing a Last 16 berth with a win at home against Celje on Wednesday.

But judging from the first encounter between the two teams, in which Celje took the two points, and last week’s performances, victory is far from guaranteed

GROUP B
SG Flensburg-Handewitt (GER) vs RK Celje Pivovarna Lasko (SLO)
Wednesday 13 February, 19:00 hrs local time, live on ehfTV.com

  • Flensburg are currently third in Group B with 10 points, while Celje are three points behind in seventh place
  • In September’s reverse fixture, Celje won 23:20 at home
  • Neither side have a player among the top 50 scorers of this season’s competition
  • Victory for Flensburg and a defeat for Skjern this weekend would see the German side progress to the Last 16
