On Sunday, September 19, in the second round of the Women’s Handball Champions League, CSKA Moscow will host Turkey’s strongest team, Kastanoma, at its home arena.

In the first round of the group stage, the army team was supposed to meet with the French “Metz”, but the match did not take place due to the fact that the Russian club received permission to enter France too late. The European Handball Federation decided to postpone the match until February.

The Turkish athletes, in turn, lost at their home ground to the Danish Odense 25:31 in the first round and with zero points in the piggy bank are also at the bottom of the standings.

A total of 16 teams take part in the Champions League

At the group stage of the Champions League, the opponents are divided into 2 groups of 8 teams each. After two laps in the group round, the worst pair of teams will be eliminated from the tournament. The top two clubs each go directly to the quarterfinals, while the 3rd through 6th teams will cross and form playoff pairs. The winners of the quarterfinals will advance to the final four, which will traditionally be held in Budapest.

Last season, CSKA became one of the four strongest teams in Europe, and now the Russian club is striving for even greater achievements. Before the start of the tournament, our team was joined by the top scorer of the last Champions League, Slovenian handball player Ana Gros.
