Following the interesting opening to the group phase of the EHF European League Men last week, round 2 brings hot action and fierce challenges again on Tuesday.

The schedule includes four matches, with Toulouse seeking their second straight win in group A but their visit to Leon promises to be a tough task for the French side. In the same group, Chekhov open their campaign with a match at Fivers in Austria.

In group B, both Kristianstad and Dinamo Bucuresti are seeking for a first win after suffering a defeat in round 1. And in group D, GOG want to gain their first points after a bitter opening defeat in Schaffhausen last week.

All four matches on Tuesday will be streamed live on EHFTV.
