SC Magdeburg im European-League
On May 28, the Bundesliga leader measures the club from the city of Nasice in the east of Croatia. This was the result of the draw on Friday in Vienna. WISLA Plock from Poland and host Benfica Lisbon contest the second semi -finals. Magdeburg prevailed against HBC Nantes in the quarter -finals of the European League.
"We don't go to Lisbon to just be there," said SCM managing director Marc-Henrik Schmedt of dpa. You want to defend the title and both games have to be won. "We don't know Plock and Nexe, Lisbon. In any case, a heavy opponent is waiting for us with the Croatians," said Schmedt.
good experiences against Nexe
The SCM had already played against Nexe in the group phase and won 32:26 and 28:24. The paths of both teams also crossed themselves last season. At that time it was 32:24 and 28:23 for the Magdeburgers.
Last year the SCM won the final against the Foxes Berlin in Mannheim. Magdeburg is the only Bundesliga representative at the final round in Lisbon after three clubs were still at the Final Four in 2021. In the past 17 editions of the competition (previously EHF Cup), the winner only did not come from Germany once.
