While the Lions will try to preserve the one goal lead from the first leg , the pressure is on Kielce to reach a minimum of five goals difference
Last week the EHF Champions League brough us some ultimate excitement in the struggle of the top clubs from Europe to reach the quarter final.Barcelona and Vardar are already there as winners of their groups,but the six teams that will join them are still in question.And while things are rather clear in the matches Pick Szeged – Bjerringbro Silkeborg, Veszprem – Zagreb and Flensburg-Meshkov Brest, the matches in Kielce and Mannheim are still bringing much uncertainty. As gambling news report, this is a perfect chance for handball fans to visit some of their favorite online sportsbooks and increase the excitement of the world’s top class handball.
Rhein Neckar Löwen vs THW Kiel
The match of the round will certainly be the clash among Rhein Nekar Löwen and THW Kiel. Beside the small win of the lions on their visit of the Sparkassen Arena, the return match in Mannheim practically is again opened in regard of the outcome.
The bookmakers however seem to be less reserved about the outcome. NetBet, thus gives Rhein Nekar Löwen odds of 1.47 while bwin 1.48 for a win. Kiel is rather left behind with 3.40 at bwin and 3.30 at NetBet. The possibility for THW Kiel to win with a margin of 1-3 goals and overcome thus the difference from the first leg is evaluated with odds of 4.50 by bwin.
• Kielce will need much more than the home support of the fans to overcome the five goal difference
• Duvnjak and Co. to attack the lions in their ‘cage’
• Veszprem, Flensburg and Pick Szeged seems to have already secured atheir quarter finals
The winner of this match, as online sportsbooks in the EU note, will definitely not have an easy task in the quarter final, having as its opponent the Spanish champions, Barcelona. Beside the team rejuvenation Barcelona managed to top the extraordinary difficult group A in the previous phase, showing constantly high class performances that definitively bring them as favorites for the Final Four against any of the two German teams.
Vive Tauron Kielce vs Montpellier
A five goals lead has many times in the past proved to be an easy obstacle for the teams of Talant Dujshebaev. The home arena in Kielce is yet another guarantee that the players of Montpellier will have to pass a through “hell” on their way to the quarter final? The main question is: how possible is this scenario?
For NetBet the issue is pretty clear. Only 1.24 odds for Kielce and high 4.7 for Montpellier speak enough about who the favorite in the match is.Bwin is having similar predictions too: 1.25 for Kielce and 4.75 for Montpellier.
Last week we saw some extraordinary performances on both sides. Filip Ivic kept Kielce on a bearable difference from Montpellier for a long time during the match, while on the other side Diego Simonet was shining in the middle of the court.The magnificent game of the Argentinian center was not left unnoticed even by Dujshebaev who gave many compliments on his address after the match. Whether some extraordinary individual performance will decide the match in Kielce, is something that handball and bet on sports fans should find out this Sunday. The overall winner of this duel will meet the winner of the match Veszprem – Zagreb in the quarter final.
