What teams need to do to reach the quarter-finals

While some teams are already looking forward to the quarter-finals and others will be saying farewell to European competition for at least another season this weekend, there is still so much to be decided in the sixth and final round of group phase matches in the EHF European League Women.

Here you will discover all the different permutations across the four groups, and see what exactly each team with an unresolved fate requires to go through.

A reminder, the away goals rule no longer applies in this competition.

Group A

BVB Borussia 09 Dortmund and Siofok KC are through, meaning ES Besancon and Molde Elite are already eliminated.

Dortmund and Siofok are level on eight points and play each other in round 6. Dortmund must win to finish first thanks to their defeat to Siofok earlier in the group.

Group B

Ikast Handbold have already finished first in the group while Fana are out.

Motherson Mosonmagyarovari KC must win to overtake Neptunes de Nantes and finish second.

Group C

If Sola HK beat Nykøbing Falster Håndbold and DVSC Schaeffler (Debrecen) do not lose to HC Podravka Vegeta:
Sola first, Debrecen second and Nykøbing third

If Sola beat Nykøbing and Debrecen lose to Podravka:
Sola first, Nykøbing second and Debrecen third

If Sola draw with Nykøbing and Debrecen beat Podravka:
Sola first, Debrecen second and Nykøbing third

If Sola draw with Nykøbing and Debrecen do not beat Podravka:
Sola first, Nykøbing second and Debrecen third

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by one goal, and Debrecen do not beat Podravka:
Sola first, Nykøbing second and Debrecen out

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by two goals, and Debrecen do not beat Podravka:
the overall goal difference will determine the first and second place between Sola and Nykøbing; and Debrecen out

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by more than two goals and Debrecen do not beat Podravka:
Nykøbing first, Sola second and Debrecen out

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by more than two goals and fewer than 15 goals and Debrecen beat Podravka:
Nykøbing first, Sola second and Debrecen out

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by 15 goals and Debrecen beat Podravka:
Nykøbing first, second place will come down to the higher number of goals scored between these three teams (currently Debrecen 100, Sola 79). If Sola lose 21:36 then the next criteria is the overall goal difference

If Sola lose to Nykøbing by more than 15 goals and Debrecen beat Podravka:
Nykøbing first, Debrecen second and Sola third

Group D

Thüringer HC have finished first.

If Vac lose to Valcea:
Valcea second and Paris third

If Vac and Valcea draw:
Paris need to beat THC by at least seven goals to finish second (if they win by six goals, then they will be level on the goal difference and the higher number of goals scored decides)

If Valcea do not lose to Vac by more than five goals:
Paris 92 need to beat THC to finish second

If Valcea lose to Vac by six goals and Paris draw with THC:
They will have the same overall goal difference and it goes down to the higher number of goals scored

If Valcea lose to Vac by more than six goals and Paris draw with THC:
Paris second and Valcea third
