Defending champions on course for DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4

Having won the first-leg quarter-final in Denmark 29:28, Györi Audi ETO KC stand a very good chances of qualifying for the DELO WOMEN’S EHF FINAL4 when they host Women’s Champions League debutants Odense HC in Audi Arena, Györ on Saturday evening.

However, the reigning back-to-back champions should be wary of the match turning out like the first leg, where Odense managed to come back from a seven-goal deficit and even take the lead before Györ decided the matter at the end. This comeback will have given the Danish team extra confidence.
