European League: All set for the quarter-finals

Füchse Berlin, Rhein-Neckar Löwen, and Dinamo București all took care of business in the second match, securing a spot in the quarter-final, while IK Sävehof achieved an upset victory against Hannover-Burgdorf.
– This is one of the club’s greatest victories of all time, stated Sävehofs head coach Michael Apelgren at the press conference after the match.

After yesterday’s last four games in the round of 16, the quarter-finals are now ready to be played. Füchse Berlin, who had a four-goal lead after the first game, gave Kadetten no chance in the rematch. After ten minutes, the Germans had it all under full control with a 6–1 lead and then never let Kadetten anywhere near.

Dinamo București also made the story short with Bjerringbro Silkeborg starting the game hot. 23 minutes into the first half, the Romanians had only let the home team score four times, leading 14–4. Silkeborg tried to make a comeback late in the second half, but the lead was too big. In Germany, Rhein-Neckar Löwen had a five-goal lead to start the game against RK Nexe. The Croatians needed something big but were all game long just a little behind Löwen, and in the end, lost 31–29.

In the quarter-finals, Nantes, SG Flensburg-Handewitt, Skjern, and Sporting are awaiting yesterday’s winners. The doubleheaders will be played on the 23rd of April and the 30th of April.
