In the semi-finals Bregenz play against the Belgian champions Bocholt, while Portuguese title holders ABC face their counterparts from Israel.

The runners-up and the third team of this qualification group will carry on in the EHF Cup Round 3, while the bottom ranked team will start already in the second round facing the winner of the Round 1 match between Csurgói KK and Bodö HK.
