15.4.2020 Season 26 champions Juventus DM in Group G
This season we have only one team that has won the tournament in previous editions and this is Juventus DM from the Czech Republic. Back in season 26 they faced Ajax Panterdam on the final and won with a walkover 5-0 since Ajax failed to get 11 players on the pitch, a very unusual way to win the title for sure.
After finishing 4th in their group and losing all of their games from the EHF Pseudo Champions League last season Juventus will be playing Europa Cup football in this campaign. Now they'll be determined to at least get back in the Champions League next season and who knows maybe they could add another trophy to the club cabinet.
The Czech team was drawn in Group G alongside FC LEAR (ROU), Bøvlerup fc (DNK) and the debutants Spartak Moscu FC (VEN).

We would like to ask all participiants to remove their teams from the friendly pool so that the EHF app can organize their friendlies

This Saturday in Plovdiv, Bulgaria was played the final match of the EHF Europa Cup Season 20. Farmers on the storm (Croatia) faced Snapp BK (Norway) in a match where 3452 spectators came to the stadium De Leeukop.
Farmers went into the game with a 5-3-2 against a 2-5-3 from Snapp. The Croatian defence proved to be rock-solid and they didn't concede a single goal. Two counter-attacks in the first half followed by a SE and a set piece in the second formed the final result 4-0 for Farmers.
Post match Snapp BK manager stated he's disappointed with the result and praised the opposition deffence: "Not happy with my tactics and disappointed that I didn`t score. That doesn`t happen very often. I ran into a brick wall."

This week the matches from the Round of 16 will be played on neutral ground and the winners will receive the chance to play in next season's EHF Pseudo Champions League.
The Pseudo Champions League became part of the EHF organisation this season and both competitions will form a promotion and relegation system with the winners from the Champions League being promoted to the Club World Cup where awesome prizes await.
20.11.2017 Preview: Panterdam - Farmers
Looks as if we are in for a great cup tie, with two well matched teams who will be hoping to head off on a long cup run. Ajax Panterdam's fans are hoping that this is going to be their year to get their hands on the cup but equally Farmers on the storm's supporters are bullish about their chances too. The teams are hard to split, so it should be a very competitive match, with the majority of pundits making Farmers on the storm the slight favourites to be heading into the draw for the next round.
Predicted Ajax Panterdam Starting Line-up: Hristov - Monllor, Viglino, Faial, Petrovics - Kochmarov, Vuchkov, Gornishki, Popov - Mitev, Hristov
Predicted Farmers on the storm Starting Line-up: Kukec - Lubanović, Strpić, Paun, Hržić, Macokatić - Tvrdi, Baumans, Pandit, Vukčević, Gosić
Kickoff time 21 November at 23:15 CET
