Final 4: Time for the Final and Bronze Match

The semifinals in the Final 4 were decided yesterday, and the teams for the final have now been determined. It will be Aalborg and Barca competing for the gold, while Magdeburg and Kiel will play for the bronze.

There will be no all-German final, and not even a single German team in the final. Magdeburg lost to a well-playing Aalborg by two goals, after a close match decided in the final minutes. In the other semifinal, there was no doubt. Barca, with a certain Emil Nielsen in goal, was dominant and won against Kiel by 12 goals.

Instead, there will be an all-German bronze match, with Magdeburg and Kiel playing for third place. The final will be a repeat of the 2021 trophy match between Aalborg and Barca. Aalborg is seeking revenge and hopes to improve on their second place from the 2021 final. Barca, on the other hand, is chasing their third title in four seasons and their eleventh title overall.
