First Match of the Week of 2019 goes to Celje

The VELUX EHF Champions League resumes in just three weeks and with it come four weeks of intense battles in the race for the Last 16.

Match of the Week for Rounds 11 to 13 have been confirmed, with the destinations spread right across Europe.

First stop is Celje, where the Slovenian champions will be fighting for points against Szeged, who have emerged as serious VELUX EHF FINAL4 contenders this season.

Moving on to Group A and a trip to Skopje to enjoy 2017 champions Vardar take on a resurgent Veszprém, who have recently joined a four-way contest for second place in the group.

Last season’s beaten finalists Nantes take on Szeged in Round 13 in a clash which is certain to have a big impact on their final placement in Group B and determine their path to Cologne.

All three matches will be broadcast on ehfTV.com with English commentary from Tom O’Brannagain or Chris O’Reilly. Additionally, there will be an exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage on the competition's social media channels presented by the faces of the Champions League Markus Floth and Hannah Jackson.
