Bietigheim are aiming to extend their winning run to an unprecedented six matches in the Match of the Week against Odense, while a win for Bietigheim and one for Györ would see the two sides keep a healthy lead at the top of the group.

Reigning champions Vipers Kristiansand will try to get back to winning ways against French powerhouse Metz Handball. Ikast Handbold are travelling to Erd where they will try to extend their perfect streak, but they will have to face FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria who are looking for redemption.

I hope we can play as well as we did against Odense, and we can fight as hard as against Buducnost, and then it will be a close match, and in the end anything can happen.

We saw what a difficult start Sävehof had to the Champions League season. Like all Swedish teams, their defence can be very tough - and they have a great goalkeeper in Johanna Bundsen. We want to continue the high level of concentration we have shown in recent games.

We have to recover our fighting personality and we have to show them our best version.

Team Esbjerg is a complete team, Scandinavian style, which we have already experienced twice this season. Despite these recent results, our game is looking better and better in terms of scoring goals, but we also know what we will have to correct before the next match, for example better organisation in defence.

We believe in our own abilities and our concept. We believe that when we play at our highest level, we can play against all teams in Europe. That is why we also believe that we can win in Hungary.

20231026 Vipers Quote
We need to be good in our attack, and we need to be switched on from the very first second if we want to stop the strong sides of Metz. We know that they are very good in the counter attack, we know that they have good shooters who like to start out wide, and we know that it’s vital for us to stop those actions.

Head coach, Vipers Kristiansand
