The Final 4 semifinals will be decided

The Final 4 will be decided in Cologne, with the semifinals being played throughout the day. The top teams Barca, THW Kiel, SC Magdeburg, and Aalborg are competing.

SC Magdeburg will face Aalborg in the first semifinal, while Barca will take on THW Kiel in the second.

SC Magdeburg aims to defend their title after defeating Industria Kielce in both last year’s final and this year’s quarterfinals. To succeed, they must get past Aalborg, who are looking to improve on their second-place finish from 2021 and become the first male Danish team to win.

In the second semifinal, Barca is chasing their third title in four seasons and their eleventh overall. They face THW Kiel, who hope to win their first title since 2020.

There is a possibility we might see the first all-German final since 2014, but for that to happen, both SC Magdeburg and THW Kiel need to win their respective semifinals. The final and the bronze match will be played tomorrow.

Final 4, Semifinals:

(15.00): SC Magdeburg (GER)–Aalborg Handball (DEN)
(18.00): Barca (ESP)–THW Kiel (GER)
