NEWS REPORT: The 2016/17 MOTW series could hardly feature a more prestigious pairing than a clash between the two most decorated teams of the European top flight
Last MOTW of the season goes to Palau Blaugrana
The last edition of this season’s Match of the Week series will take place on court of FC Barcelona Lassa as the eight-time EHF Champions League winners will play hosts to their arch rivals THW Kiel in the second quarter-final leg.
MOTW, Quarter-Final - second leg:
Following their 28:26 first leg win THW, who eliminated Barcelona in the quarter-finals last season, are closer to a ticket to the VELUX EHF FINAL4, but the home team will undoubtly put up a maximum effort to reverse the first leg setback and revenge for the last year too.
“We know these games are always tight. Champions league group stage or FINAL4, the team roster never seems to matter. It's two giants going head to head and causing an avalanche,” said ehfTV.com commentator Tom O’ Brannagain, who will guide the fans through the epic clash on Saturday. The Match of the Week starts at 18:30 hrs local time at the Palau Blaugrana stadium.
