Two teams from Romania and two from Norway are in the mix when the quarter-finals of the EHF European League Women throw off with the first leg this weekend. Eight teams have their eyes set on the four tickets for the EHF Finals Women 2024 on 1/2 June in Graz, Austria.

20240314 ELW QF Preview Podravka Quote
Ahead of us are two great games. We didn't expect to be in the quarterfinals of the European League. We need to play our own game, be tough on the defence, and make the best of every opportunity on the offence. We have a good chance to take the victory, especially if we will have the support we had in the group phase.

Podravka are a strong and aggressive team that caused problems for many opponents at home. We know that it will be a difficult match, but with a good preparation and the correct tactics, I am sure that we will return home with a victory.

There is always a big battle between the teams from Romania and Hungary. I hope that the best will win in the end – and that it will be us. I have reached the EHF Finals two times, and I hope this will be the third time.

It is always a special feeling to play internationally. You feel it in the locker room, on the court, and also the atmosphere from the fans in the hall. It’s going to be 120 minutes of fighting because it’s the last step on the road to Graz and we really want to be in the EHF Finals again. I hope that we can gain a lead in front of our home crowd before we go to Storhamar next week.

I think it will be a tough match and an even match, we have to be turned on from the start. I believe it's a very cool arena to play in. Thüringer HC are a good team with good players in all positions.

It will be nice to come back to Nantes where I have many good memories from my time there. It will be exciting to play against such a good team on an away pitch with a lot of people and punch. Hope we can do a good game and put ourselves in a good situation before the home game next week.
