6 Take Aways from the Last 16 Actions

The first round of battles from the VELUX EHF Champions League Last 16 has ended and the duels were also a excellent advertisement for the rivalry.

Out of those six matches at the first legresulted in a two-goal difference or not, which leaves great room for turnovers and drama within the return leg .

Here are six talking points after last week’so matches.

Symbolic six at the Balkan battle

What was expected to be an exciting Balkan struggle between H C PPD Zagreb and H C Vardar became one way : the 2017 winners slipped to a 27:18 triumph at the Match of the Week.

Vardar were first sixth in probably the most recent EHF power ranking plus so they justified that position with their performance in Zagreb. Their first location is representational, given that they retained Zagreb just at six goals to get the whole first half at the game (14:6).

Zagreb have a near-impossible mission while within the return match in Skopje. If they are going to have a chance, they need to get their way round Dejan Milosavljev, who was incredible at Vardar’s goal.
