In the 2020-21 season of the LEN Euro Cup 16 water polo teams are left to fight for the trophy. They will continue the tournament next February so there is plenty of time to meet the top clubs. Like Hungarian team Szolnok who are one of the main favorites in the LEN Euro Cup winner odds.
The LEN Euro Cup is the second-tier European water polo tournament behind the LEN Champions League. We can still find several great teams here. Like Italian side Brescia who won the cup the most times with 4 titles. After the qualification round we got to know the top 16 teams who will continue to play in the eightfinals next February. The cup was cancelled last season while the last champions, Marseille play in the Champions League this season. Which opens the way for new clubs to get the trophy.
LEN Euro Cup winner odds favor Szolnok and Mladost
The Hungarian team of Szolnok has the smallest odds, 2.00 to win this year’s LEN Euro Cup by online sportsbooks in Croatia. The team won their qualifying group confidently with three wins. They also play well in the Hungarian league which they lead at the moment. Zivko Gocic’s team has top players like Hungarian international Daniel Angyal or goalkeeper Viktor Nagy. But Olympic gold medalists Serbian Dusko Pijetlovic and Filip Filipovic are also great assets of the team. Szolnok will meet Montenegrin side Primorac Kotor in the last 16.
One of their biggest rivals for the trophy can be Mladost Zagreb from Croatia. Who are also mentioned as a big favorite in the LEN Euro Cup winner odds. The 7-time Champions League winner also finished on the top of their group after defeating both of their opponents. They are currently in 2nd place in their domestic league only losing one game in the season. Mladost will meet CN Barcelona in the next round which seems to be a great game. But online gambling sites in Croatia predict their team to go all the way and offer the odds of 2.50 for their final victory.
Other strong teams who can win the cup
We have to mention another Hungarian team, OSC who have a great chance to win their first LEN Euro Cup. Their team also won the qualifying group with three wins and will play against French Pays d’Aix. OSC are the favorites of that tie after performing well this season both in the domestic and international leagues. In spite of losing their major sponsor and losing their foreign players, the team has the odds of 4.50 to win the cup on bet365.
The Greek side of Vouliagmeni finished as a runner-up in 2004 but haven’t achieved similar successes since. Now they have the odds of 10.00 to get an even better result and win the cup. But they will face a tough opponent in their next game in Serbian VK Beograd who finished second behind OSC in their group. Vouliagmeni seems to be the stronger side though with more experience and great players. Even though the Greek league is halted at the moment hopefully they can be back in the pool soon to get ready for the game.
